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.
Making sure that you don’t press too hard with the colored pencils will also prevent them from breaking.
Choose a coloring book that appeals to you. Coloring books geared towards adults have enjoyed a recent surge in popularity, so you have many options to choose from.
Color along the lines first and work your way in. Coloring along the edges of a distinct area first and then working your way work way in will help prevent you from coloring outside of the lines.
When using on loose sheets of paper, you may want to cover your work surface in newspaper depending on the coloring utensils you’ve chosen (markers may bleed through your paper and leave behind marks).
