Choose the best place to begin coloring. Some drawing utensils (such as gel pens, colored pens, or markers) are more likely to smear than others.
Felt markers, crayons, colored pens, and colored pencils are all ideal coloring tools for kids to use.
Choose a coloring book that appeals to you. There are countless coloring books created specifically for kids, so finding one that suits your interests or mood should not be too difficult.
Note that you are not necessarily limited to actual coloring books, as there are many printable coloring pages designed for adults are available online, many of which are free.
If you want to make sure that you get the colors right, get a scrap piece of paper and try drawing swatches with the same colored pencil using different amounts of pressure. You can use the swatches as a reference point to decide how much pressure you want to use while coloring.
No matter what colors you ultimately choose, having a rough idea of how you’d like your completed piece to look will help ensure that you are satisfied with your final product.
