1. Tape your printed design  on the opposite side of where you are going to paint.
2. On the side that you will paint, take your sharpie pen and trace your design. Let dry.
3. Peel off the print. Fill in any spaces you might have missed.
4. Begin painting in the lines. The trick is to start with the closest layer that will face closest to you on the other side (ex. If you’re coloring a character with hair, start with the hair, then the eyes and other minor details, then color in the face. Anime characters are the easiest to start with.)
