Make sure you warm your hands and wrists up before coloring by doing some simple exercises. Rotate your wrist ten times clockwise, then repeat anti-clockwise. Clench and stretch your fingers as you unclench your fist – do this ten times to get the blood flowing to your hands and finger-tips. This will help avoid your hand cramping as you color. Take regular breaks and repeat this exercise, I try not to color for more than 20 minutes without shaking the stiffness out of my hands!
Just remember, you don’t have to finish your coloring page in one sitting. If you are looking to produce the best finish possible to your coloring page then don’t rush it! Spend multiple sittings, or carve out a couple of hours, but just breathe and take your coloring slow. You aren’t working to a deadline and there is no boss to please (other than you!). The only rule you have is to relax, lose yourself in the page and lay down some color.
I find that to really enjoy my coloring I need to connect with the page I am working on. When I am looking at starting a new coloring page a few things can influence my decision. Sometimes, I can be thinking about a particular color style or palette that I have seen that I would like to try out on a page, for instance psychedelic coloring. On other occasions when I have had a bad day at work, I’ll want to zone out whilst I color; for these times I often find myself reaching for a mandala. There is something about coloring my way through those circles of pattern that really help my mind to switch off!
