What to use for coloring blown up images?

I have blown up several images on poster board and was wondering what to use to color in the images? Crayons? Markers? Colored Pencils? Color Chalk?

If the images are on colored posterboard your best bet for true colors is probably crayons. If you have construction paper crayons or craypas that might be even better. Try a little on the back first. If the images are on white posterboard marker will be the most vivid. You just have to be careful not to smudge the marker while it's wet. It will take a few minutes to dry on the glossy surface-especially if you are in one of the hot and humid areas. Have fun coloring.

I would go with paint. the color would be more even and it would pop out more.

Oil Pastels

Whenever I make anything on poster board I use oil pastels to color it. After coloring it I rub a paper towel over the color to give it a nice even color. Before I use it in my classroom I laminate it and it always turns out great! I learned this technique in a "Make And Take" class years ago.

Most of the images are on white posterboard. I have used marker before, but was wondering if there was anything better. Thanks for all of your suggestions. I'm off to color!

Oil Pastels

Like the above post, I love to use oil pastels. It really does look nice once it is all finished. You have to use a soft touch when using these and once I am finished, I outline the whole thing with a black marker and laminate it.

Used to color...

...but now when I use my transparencies, I trace the image onto fadeless art paper. I roll out the color I need, tape it to the board, and trace the picture. If I need another color for the eyes or something, then I use that color fadeless art paper and glue it to the other piece. I outline it with a bold black marker, then cut it out. The colors of the paper really pop, and I didn't have to color anything at all! The fadeless art paper rolls come in beautiful colors like magenta, canary yellow, rich blue, bright green, etc.
