Everyone knows that a picture is worth 1000 words so how many words is a Doodle worth? In this tutorial, we explore turning any picture book or coloring book into a stencil for Doodling. So start looking around your house or library and seeing what characters or stories you want to bring to life with your 3Doodler. In this week's blog, we talked about the importance of coloring both for children and adults alike. Check it out!

1 Assemble your materials!

You will need to gather your 3Doodler, plastic, and DoodlePad alongside your favorite picture or coloring book. Make sure that it's a book that you are willing to get messy since there is a possibility of getting plastic on it.

2 Identify Your Subject

First things first, Identify what you want to Doodle from your book. We have decided to go with this fun Dr. Seuss character but you can pick anything you want.

Note: Depending on the thickness of your book you might be able to Doodle directly onto the page if you are using a Start+ pen. In our example, we are able to skip the DoodlePad thanks to the book we choose having extra thick pages.

3 Doodle Your Character

After you have identified the character you want to Doodle from your book then it's time to get to work. Trace over your character. Depending on your project try matching colors exactly like in our example. Or go with crazy unexpected colors to spice things up. It all depends on your preference.

4 Bring your Doodle to Life

The final step is to bring your Doodle to life. With your Doodlepad, Doodle a triangle and attach it to the back of your creation. This will allow your Doodle to stand upright allowing it to have a life of its own. Or another idea would be to keep your creation flat and use it as a bookmark.
