There are six sheets of tracing paper in the back of the pad. You can place one over the drawing of your choice and color or paint it as many times as you wish actually using any type of tracing paper after you have used all that is provided. Also, in a further description of this product on another vendor page it says you can use paints, pastels, chalks or inks to complete your customized drawing. The paper in the pad is very smooth and quite lovely to use. Another tip, if you are just practicing drawing, you could actually photocopy the page and use it many, many times. Good luck and enjoy!
