New coloring techniques are so much fun to practice! Learn how to color using the unicorn coloring technique. This technique involves coloring an image with rainbow colors! You'll want to color little splotches, almost like cow prints, that blend neatly into one another. Make sure you press lightly so the colors blend smoothly! Choose a corner of the image and move to the opposite corner as you color. Once finished, add the final detail glitter! Every coloring page can be magical with this fantastical technique.

Materials List

  • Set of colored pencils in rainbow colors
  • Glitter
  • Glue
  • Coloring page (I used this one)


  1. Don't press too hard with the colored pencils!

  2. Hold the pencil at an angle so you get soft strokes instead of hard lines.

  3. Start in the upper lefthand corner and gradually color towards the bottom right.

  4. Color in a sort of splotchy way---almost like a "cow print!" Have fun with it!

  5. Color in "rainbow order"---you don't want colors that don't blend well to mix and turn brown.

  6. To finish, add a bit of glitter to your image! I added blue glitter where there was blue color on the page. You can choose any glitter colors you like! Silver would be very magical.
