The tool drawer contains all of the tools you use with the Kea Coloring Book.
Paint bucket - fills an area
The paint bucket allows you too fill an area with color. Select a color from the paint drawer or from the mixing pots.
Click with the bottom tip of the paint to fill in an area of the picture. The color fills all the way to the edges, or if you've already done some painting then to the edge of the painted area.
If you've painted lots of colors into one area and want to go back to just one color you need to wash it first.
Eye-dropper - for mixing colors
You use the eye-dropper tool to suck up colors, and then squirt them into the mixing pots.
Colors can be sucked up from the paints in the paint drawer, from other mixing pots, or even from the picture itself. Click once to suck up a little bit of color, twice for a little bit more, ... up to 5 times to fill the dropper with paint.
Just like with real paint, the more you add of one color the stronger the effect of that color will be.
Wash tool - cleans an area, or a mixing pot
Turn on the tap to wash an area of your colored picture clean.You also use the top to wash away paint from a mixing pot.
Brushes - big and small
There are lots of different sized brushes to choose from in the tool drawer, from ultra-fine to mega-fat. Select a color from the paint drawer or from the mixing pots.
You can get really creative with the brush, splashing on the color and adding details, to turn a simple black and white drawing into a truly unique work of art.
