Greyscale Fashion Plates for Colouring in

The coloured versions of most of these fashion plates are here.  Others are on individual fashion plate pages in this section. These greyscale images are for school class use for colouring in.  See the original coloured fashion plates and read about the history of the Englishwoman's Domestic Magazine here.

School Lesson Use

The thumbnails here will enlarge to make A4 prints for colouring in.

Print off the enlargements.

Use them in class situations. They can be coloured either with a brush and watercolour or use water-soluble pencils.  Use water-soluble crayons or pencils such as those by Caran d'Ache. Instruct students to stroke the images with gentle pencil strokes then use a lightly damp paintbrush to blend and merge colours. This will give them an idea of the hand-work that colourists did to tint plates.
