There are a lot of little nuances that aren't explained in the videos or the books. Like if you have a paint pen you should blot it first on something... or just how hard can you squeeze a queen without hurting her, or how fast is she. It's the little details that make things work or not. Get next year's color. Mark a thousand drones. Then do a few workers for good measure (harder and more likely to get stung). Then use this year's color on the queen. By now you are confident and all those details like how fast to move or how hard to squeeze or blotting the paint etc. are second nature.
