The artist/author encourages colorists to feel free to make copies of the plates (for personal use only) to experiment with color pallets, try art on different types of paper and card stock with different media (like markers and watercolor), and to keep a clean copy of the illustration in tact for future coloring projects.
*** The pages in this book are not perforated, but you may carefully score them with a ruler and blade for removal.
