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!
As well as finding somewhere you can relax, make sure that you are also looking after your eyes, wrist and back when you are coloring. Being hunched over a coloring book for a couple of hours may produce a beautiful work of art, but if you aren’t careful you could end up straining your eye-sight, back and wrists!
