Can I make a confession? I love to color! It's something I've never outgrown, and I don't think I ever will. The fact that adult coloring books have become popular makes me so so happy—not just because it means I'm not the only one, but it means it's easy to find great coloring books! My kids were getting really sick of sharing their coloring books with me and the pages in the kid coloring books were just too simple.
I'd seen comic book artists use Sharpies to color their drawings at Free Comic Book Day (read more about Free Comic Book Day here, it rocks!) So I tried using Sharpies for my adult coloring books and coloring therapy. Love them!!
I'm having so much fun coloring! Not only is it a great way to relax, it helps me listen when I normally would have trouble concentrating (I have ADHD Inattentive).
Here are a few things to help you get started (or have even more fun if you're already addicted, like me). These are the two books I've tried so far. Love them both! Relaxing Therapy Coloring Book (I found mine at Costco but Amazon has it as well) and The Doctor Who Coloring Book. I've included all of the geeky coloring books that are on my wishlist.
Sharpie Fine-Tip Permanent Marker, 24-Pack Assorted Colors (Great for larger blocks of color and consistent/smoother lines)
SUDEE STILE Color Pencils Set (120 Colors) Colored pencils come in a HUGE variety of colors and allow for more artistry in shading, etc.
Gel Pens 120 Top Quality Gel Ink Pen Set with Compact PVC Case Gel pens make me feel like I'm painting. If you're going for the popular style of lots of different colors per coloring page, this is a fun option!
