This is a full color book where we have matched as closely as possible the colors found on an artists color wheel. This book IS pre-printed with color, and is meant to help “get you in the ballpark” when it comes to picking colors from your tools. For example, you could pick a color scheme that you like from the book, and then pull out your colored pencils and match as close as you can the colors on the printed page. (Keep in mind, it will never match perfectly…a printer’s CMYK colors are completely different from the pigments/inks and fillers found in coloring tools. But the printed book will help you get as close as possible.) This book can be used with any coloring tool…how it differs is that it doesn’t give you exact names and numbers of the tools (because of course we could never include those for every coloring tool out there.) The bright side is that you don’t have to color the book. 🙂
