Hello everyone!! Kymona here to show you how to watercolor your coloring book pages with Colorbox Dye Inks! Adult coloring books are the latest craze so I wanted to show you how you that your not limited to just color pencils or markers. Pull out your Colorbox Dye Inks and lets get started.
Here is the list of supplies you’ll need:
- ColorBox® Premium Dye 4-Color Inkpads: Spring, Summer and Fall
- Glitter Winter Frost
- Glue Gloss
- Zenspirations Flowers Coloring Book
- Clear Block
- 2″ Round Watercolor Paint Brush
How to get started watercoloring in your coloring book:
Place a thick piece of cardstock between the coloring pages.
Stamp the Spring ColorBox® Premium Dye 4-Color Inkpad onto the clear block.
First wet your paintbrush with just a little bit of water. Then pick up the first color and paint the flowers.
Paint the entire page using the ColorBox® Premium Dye 4-Color Inkpad listed above.
When you are ready to change the four colors on your ink block, just use a damp paper towel and clean off the block before adding a new set of colors.
Dye inks dry pretty fast so no need to worry about ink spreading across your paper if your hand touches the painting.
Note: I was so excited to open the glue gloss that I complete rip the packaging off. So I wanted to make sure you know what it looks like with no packaging. Don’t take off your complete packaging.
Simple add the glue where you want the glitter to stick to.
Sprinkle the glitter where the glue was placed.
Sprinkle off the excess and funnel it back into the bottle.
Take a close up look at the glitter.

Take your creation a step further and frame your creation.
