I laughed when I saw this Dummies Book. Who doesn't know how to color? Me. Chapter 1 has lots of information about choosing materials and techniques to use as you color. Markers, colored pencils, crayons & watercolors can be used to create different effects like dotting, hatching, texture and depth. Very helpful in making coloring more enjoyable. ~ Reviewed by Sarah Knight
