The coloring book is really easy and fun to use. Here are a few helpful tips...

Choosing a Coloring Page

REPLACE THIS text with instructions for your site.

Coloring Tools

You can color in with the paint brush, the magic brush or the paint bucket.

Paint Brush The paint brush lets you paint wherever you want using the current color and brush size. Just hold down the mouse and move the paint brush around to color in.
Magic Brush The magic brush is like the paint brush, but magically stays inside the lines.
Brush Size You change the brush size using the size slider. Drag to the left for a smaller brush and to the right for a larger one.
Paint Bucket The paint bucket will fill the area you click with the selected color.
Text Tool The text tool lets you type text onto your coloring page. This is a fun way to add a message to your picture. You can choose the color of the text from the color palette.
Text Tools You change the text size using the text size slider, and choose different text styles from the drop down.
Wash Tool The wash tool cleans the area that you click (back to white).

Paint Color

Color Palette Use the palette on the left to choose a paint color for the brush, magic brush, paint bucket, and text tool.
Random Color You can also choose the special random paint which will change the paint color every time you use a brush or the bucket, or type another letter in the text tool.
Color Selector If you want to choose a color not on the palette, just click the color selector and choose exactly the color you need.

Color Picker: Sometimes you want to use a color you've already painted with. You can grab a color from the coloring page by holding down the [Ctrl] key. The tool changes temporarily to a dropper which can suck up the color you want.

Save and Print

Once you've finished with coloring you can easily save your colored picture, or you can print it out.
