Celtic Bird Pattern Paper Bag

Step 3

Using Prismacolor Colored Pencils color in your Celtic bird.  For the best results keep your pencils very sharp during use. Sharp pencil points fill  in the fine texture of the paper.  Create your colors slowly by laying multiple layers of thin coloring over each other.  You can create gradual blends by working different tonal values of one color over another or you can change the color on an area by working a different hue over the base hue.

Colored pencils are wax based.  As you work the coloring bring each layer up to but not over the black outlines of the design.

To keep your colored pencil work clean, place a sheet of paper over any areas of the design on which your hand or fingers lie.
