But how do you keep track of colors when you finish a session? Many people jot down the pencil number on a scrap of paper like my dad has done in this illustration.
I keep track of my colors by making little charts and remember them by name instead of number.
I keep trying to make the perfect chart but always run out of space and end up with bunches of these scraps.
These palettes can be used to help you remember the colors you used so far. The next time you open your book you can simply look up the colors by number or name and continue coloring. See the "Love Birds" page below.
I recommend you take a little extra time and number or letter your set of "Twistable" pencils so you can use the palettes in your books. I mark a piece of masking tape and wrap it around the top of the pencil. With all that money you just saved it's worth a little extra time to make them serviceable.
