By On Sep 21, 2018 Coloring Pages
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.
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!
From here you can start to think about more advanced techniques like shading, burnishing and blending colors and begin to work with some of the tools that the coloring professionals use. Remember, these techniques take time and practice to master – don’t expect to be producing masterpieces over night, after all it took Michelangelo 4 years to finish the Sistine Chapel so give yourself at least a good couple of years of practice to produce your first coloring masterpiece!
