Color² Origami Coloring Ideas PDF Print E-mail

Color² origami paper designs can be colored with a variety of colored pencils, water based markers and even watercolors. The details of the designs can be brought out by blending and shading colors, by creating large washes of color with a brush or the side of a marker or by the tip or side of a richly pigmented colored pencil. When using watercolor, use water sparingly to minimize wrinkling of the paper but if the paper does gets wrinkled just spritz the back of the paper with water and dry flat under a stack of books. These papers can be folded into beautiful origami models or just left alone or used in paper crafting. Below are coloring examples from our 4515 package colored in by the artist who designed the paper!
