Using the Paint Bucket Fill Tool in Krita – Step-by-Step Guide
Step 1: Downloading Krita
Go to the Krita website at krita.org
Look for the “Download” button on the website’s homepage and click on it.
Choose the proper version of Krita for your operating system (Windows, macOS, or Linux).
Follow the on-screen instructions to download and install Krita on your computer.
Step 2: Opening the Foster Hope Colouring Book PDF
Visit the website or email where the Foster Hope Colouring Book PDF is supplied and download it to your computer.
Open Krita on your desktop by clicking on its icon or searching for it in your applications.
Once Krita opens, go to the “File” menu and select “Open” to browse your computer for the downloaded PDF.
Select the Foster Hope Colouring Book PDF and click “Open.” Krita will convert the PDF pages into separate image files.
Step 3: Uploading and Opening Preferred Images in Krita
If you have your own colouring page or image, go to the “File” menu and select “Open.”
Browse your computer to find the image you want to colour, select it, and click “Open.”
Step 4: Using the Paint Bucket Fill Tool
Look for the “Toolbox” on the vertical left side of the screen. It has various tools used for drawing and editing.
Find the Paint Bucket Fill Tool, which is represented by a bucket icon, and click on it to select it.
Step 5: Choosing Colours from the Colour Palettes
On the right side of the screen, you’ll see the “Colour” docker. If it’s not visible, go to the “Settings” menu, click on “Dockers,” and select “Colour” to enable it.
In the “Colour” docker, you’ll find different colour palettes and a colour wheel. Click on a colour in the palette to choose it as your paint colour.
Step 6: Using the Colour Picker Tool
If you want to pick a colour from the colouring page itself, find the “Colour Picker Tool” in the toolbox. It looks like an eyedropper.
Click on the Colour Picker Tool to select it.
Hover the cursor over the colour in the colouring page that you want to use and click on it. Krita will automatically select that colour for your paint bucket.
Step 7: Start Painting!
With the Paint Bucket Fill Tool and the colour selected, click on an area within the black lines of your colouring page to fill it with the chosen colour.
Continue using the Paint Bucket Tool and changing colours to fill in different areas of the colouring page. Remember that learning a new program takes practice, just like colouring and art. Play around and experiment with different tools and options to get familiar with Krita’s features.
If you meet any issues or want to learn more about Krita’s tools and functions, refer to the manual folder on the program’s open page. It has helpful information and tips.
Important Reminder: Don’t be afraid to make mistakes or try new things. Art and creativity are all about experimenting and discovering what works best for you. Have fun and enjoy the process of creating your colourful masterpieces in Krita!
