A Buyer's Guide To Choosing Adult Coloring Books

By Donna Barnes

If you are looking for a hobby that can really relax you and reduce the amount of stress you are under, you might want to try coloring. Filling in images such as those found in adult coloring books can be a great way to take your mind off of things you find difficult and allow you to relax. Here are some things to look for when buying your first book.

Some of the images can have a lot of very fine detail. This can really draw you in and make you focus on the task at hand but for some people detail will only make them feel more stressed. You may want to try and print out a few sample images until you know what level of detail is enjoyable to work on.

You may think that these books only come in one size but this is not true. Some are very large and thick and may even have hard covers. Others are thinner and smaller and may have soft covers that can be bent or folded to fit in a pocket. You need to think about how and where you will color and this will help you pick the best book for your needs.

Shopping for these items is not difficult. You can find many options in department stores. Book stores, art supply stores and big box stores may also have some available for you to look at. Some stores may charge more than others do, so looking around may help you save money if you are still unsure if you will enjoy this new hobby.

Smooth, thick paper will usually make for a better book but it can also increase the price. You want to make sure that you can lay down a nice layer of color when you work and smoother paper will allow you to do so more easily. If you want to make sure that the color of your crayons or markers transfers accurately, make sure you look for a book that has very white pages.

It is also a good idea to choose a book that will lay flat when you open it to a specific page. Some books do not and it can become frustrating to try and color if the pages are always flipping shut. You may be able to get around this by choosing a book with removable pages as you will be able to remove them to work on and to display afterwards.

There are many things that you can use to color the images in your book. Many people like colored pencils but markers and other items can work equally well. It all depends on what you want the finished image to look like. Making sure that you use something that is capable of filling in small areas is important. The last thing you need is to become frustrated because you are not capable of working on small sections of an image.

Once you start looking around for options you will be amazed at how many different options there are. From simple images to very complex mandalas, all of them have the ability to make you forget your stress for awhile and reconnect with your inner child.
