Dingbat fonts are fun, but they're better with color. If you were wondering how to color a dingbat font you have come to the right place! For this tutorial I am using a font called "The Whole Zoo" which comes with little animal extras. It's super cute and I'm in love, but you can do this with ANY dingbat font. You can also view the walkthrough below.
I will be going through coloring pages for PERSONAL USE only in other tutorial.
Decide what character you would like to color in and place it on your workspace.
Convert your text to path.
Go to the Modify Panel and Release Compound Path
Your image should be all black (or whatever color your design lines were in)
Change your fill color (I used RED) and Ungroup
Color in the pieces of the design as you wish.
Note that when everything is colored in and you select the "red" it is a full shape. If you want just the lines to be cut (for SVG purposes not Print and Cut) you can follow the next steps. If not just color it black and be done.
Select your colored pieces and Subtract All. You should get the below effect.
Color your red outline in black, or however you desire, and cut away!
Pretty simple right? Coloring a Dingbat font should be a breeze, and now you know what to do with all of those doodles and dingbats sitting on your computer.
Again the font I used was "The Whole Zoo"
