Doodling on a Snapchat is fun; it lets you customize just about any snap with the power of your own artistry, or lack thereof.

If you’ve noticed, though, when you choose the color for said doodle, there’s no white or black options. And what if you want something in between red and white, like, say, pink?

Here’s how to make your images truly your own with custom Snapchat colors.

To choose a color normally, tap on the little pencil icon in the upper right once you’ve launched Snapchat and have taken your photo. You can then run your finger up and down the rainbow color picker in the upper right to choose a color. The pencil icon button will change color as you do so, letting you know what color you’ve chosen.

To get white, though, you’ll need to swipe from the color picker to the top left of your screen. Tap and drag to the bottom left of the screen to get black. Now you can draw or write in two of the colors the color picker doesn’t show you.

You can lighten and darken colors, too, like making pink from a lighter shade of red. Simply tap on the color picker in the red area, then drag to the left side of the screen, moving up and down to get your preferred shade.

Now you have more colors to mess with, including black and white, to make your Snapchats even more colorful.
