Coloring Tips:

1) Remember to place a sheet of cardboard behind the page you are going to color to prevent ink from bleeding through to the page below. Wet mediums, such as gel pens and markers, may bleed through the paper. Dry mediums, such as colored pencils, can create pleasing results.

2) Illustrations of fabric, foliage, and patterns can be colored with either one color or a variety of colors. Remember, many Japanese patterns are embossed or etched into the fabric with one color, while other fabrics have many colored details.

3) In the right corner, a Japanese “Hanko” signature is stamped and is usually one color such as red or gold. (The drawn “Hanko” is a simulation of the traditional artist’s stamp).
You don’t have to be concerned about the fine details of this stamp.
