Colouring books for adults are still all the rage and everybody is spoilt for choice more than ever. How-to information when it comes to colouring is not as prolifically available. In this book colouring artist Monique Day- Wilde tells all, from choosing your paper, pencils and other colouring materials to theory of colour and colour mixing, basic and advanced techniques to special effects and what to do with your coloured pages.

Learn about shading with single or multiple colours, resists, blending and burnishing, creating texture, interesting ways to fill large backgrounds, adding bling, stamping with embossing fluid and using shavings. There is so much more to colouring than just staying between the lines.
