We love colouring fairies, elves and pixies of all varieties, as they offer lots of fun, creativity and challenges! With our Fledgling Fairies Special now on sale, this is the perfect time to read our ultimate guide on how to colour fairies.
Fairies are often associated with light pastels, pinks and purples. But you can choose whatever colours you like for your fairy folk. We recommend choosing your colours before you start colouring – you can use our colour palette challenges for inspiration, or read our guide on how to choose a colour scheme for your colouring page.
You are definitely going to need to colour some fairy skin – why not try something new with our colouring tutorial for how to colour fairy skin like Christine Karron?
Beautiful flowing locks of hair are a really challenging colouring project – but essential for a beautiful fairy figure! When colouring hair, it’s important to be fluid with your markings to replicate the flowing nature of hair.
We also have a wonderful video tutorial about how to colour hair.
For fairy wings, you want to go for a beautiful and slightly transparent sparkly effect. You might even like to add a rainbow shimmer! We have an in depth tutorial all about how to colour fairy wings with a rainbow shimmer, by our colouring pencil artist Jo Barber.
