Looking for some ideas to enhance your coloring? Try out some of our favorite schemes and techniques for beautifully colored pages and a stress-relieving good time.
Pick a Palette
Are you going for a more vibrant look, or something more calming? Try warmer colors for energy and cooler colors for a calmer look. Want a certain area to pop? Try opposing colors on the color wheel (ie, orange vs. blue, green vs. red, or purple vs. yellow).
Test your Materials
Nothing is worse than opening up a brand new set of markers or pencils and realizing they don't work with your book! Try a separate sheet of paper to test out how the pencil or marker reacts. We have our favorite tools in store for you to try before you purchase!
Choose the Right Tools
Does your book come with double-sided pages? Try colored pencils so they don't bleed through. If the book has single-sided pages, you can play around with markers or watercolor paints.
Change your Pressure
No need to apply major pressure on all areas, or your fingers will cramp up! For a different look or even a lighter version of the color you want, try applying lighter pressure. If you want to define a certain area, try a firmer pressure.
Sharpen your Pencils
Dull pencils are no fun! Sharpen them regularly for best use and quality.
Have Fun and Relax!
Open up a bottle of wine and kick back on the couch while you grab your favorite coloring book. Coloring helps relieve stress and helps you relax. Go ahead, you deserve it!
