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.
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!
