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!
Start your coloring journey in small steps, think about block coloring using pen or pencil. This will give you the basic skills of applying color to the page and get you comfortable with the techniques to control your pen or pencils and stick within the lines. Then treat yourself to a refresher on color palettes, remind yourself about the color wheel and how certain colors work better together than others. Even take a look at how different colors can evoke different moods and feelings when used in a coloring page.
Find your space. Whether you are coloring for relaxation, to de-stress or simply for fun, you need a place where you are comfortable coloring. It doesn’t have to be somewhere quiet (although that can certainly help if you want to get lost in your coloring page), there are plenty of coloring groups and meetups where adults who enjoy coloring can go to chatter and color at the same time, the important thing is find your own space, reserve some time, get a comfy seat and give yourself every opportunity to color in comfort.
