Day of the Dead Coloring Book

My Day of the Dead Coloring Book offers hours of fun creative art activities for kids, teens and adults! 

By Thaneeya McArdle

 Packed with 30 original coloring pages based on the iconography of the Mexico's famous holiday, Día de los Muertos, this coloring book invites you to play with color, pattern and design. From smiling sugar skulls to dancing skeletons, this coloring book contains images inspired by Mexican culture. You'll find my contemporary interpretation of traditional Mexican folk art such as 'nichos' and 'papel picado' designed with a Day of the Dead theme.

Each page is full of intricate details and psychedelic patterns, designed to spark your imagination and provide hours of coloring fun. There's also room for you to spice up each page with your own patterns and details! As a fun bonus, the coloring book also contains several pages describing various coloring and patterning techniques, to help show you the possibilities for personalizing each page. Get inspired by nine of my colored examples, which are reproduced at nearly full-size, and flip to the inside back cover to see what media I used.

Here are a few examples of images that I colored using markers, colored pencils and gel pens:

My Day of the Dead Coloring Book is printed on high-quality extra-thick paper that can be used with markers, colored pencils, gel pens or watercolors. I personally love to combine markers and colored pencils, along with glittery gel pens for fun accents!
