Coloring Tutorials with Posh Coloring Studio

I recently had the exciting experience of creating coloring video tutorials with Posh Coloring Studio, an online community and membership program for coloring book enthusiasts.

As a member of Posh Coloring Studio, you choose your own coloring adventure by skipping the books and hand selecting the exact coloring pages you want. As a fan of coloring books myself, I think this is a perfect way to get unlimited access to a highly curated collection of designs from awesome artists right at your fingertips. In addition to over 1,000 coloring pages to choose from (including pages from my coloring book Don't Worry, Eat Cake), the online studio also features coloring tips, tricks, and techniques, as well as the option to create coloring pages from your own photos.

One of my tutorials is a video about coloring with Copic markers. If you aren't already familiar with those, they are alcohol-based markers that are awesome for blending and coloring. They are a little intimidating to use at first, but once you learn some of the basics about their labeling system and the process of how the markers work, anyone can have fun with them! Here is the video where I cover exactly that:

My other tutorial is a video about adding cool textures to your coloring pages with colored pencils. It's exclusively for Posh Coloring Studio members though, so be sure to sign up here to get special access to it!

Here are a few behind-the-scenes shots of the shoot:


The video was shot by SouthSixty and produced by SPACEMOB Studio. It was really awesome to work with these guys, and they made the whole process so fun and comfortable!

My initial reaction to the proposal of doing these tutorial videos was to say no because I always feel incredibly awkward and nervous, and also because I've never done it before, so it sounded terrifying! But I'm happy to report that it was actually very exciting and not that scary! :) I often have to take a step back before answering in situations like this and figure out if I don't want to do it because it feels wrong somehow, or if it's because I'm simply scared. The latter is when I should say yes, because often in the end those are the most exhilarating experiences!

Whether you want to relax, inspire the artist in you, or simply have fun, you'll find endless possibilities with the Posh Coloring Studio! Become a member here
