With the school holidays now in full swing the kids are spending hours on end at the kitchen table with markers, crayons, pencils and a huge stack of paper. But they are not the only who enjoy a bit of colour therapy, I am quite loving the relaxation myself too. The art and craft experts at Crayola believe that colouring in is great entertainment for all ages, which is why they have expanded their range with a special collection just for grown-ups:
The Crayola ‘Adult Colouring’ Range is designed specifically for creative adults with premium fine-line markers and pencils in a rainbow of beautiful colours. I am secretly hoping hubby reads this hint and surprises me with a lovely stash for Mother’s Day…
If you love soft shades and the ability to control the depth of your colour the Crayola Adult Coloring Colored Pencils (RRP $19.99, 50 pack) are your perfect pick. A light touch will give you a lighter colour which you can darken by adding layers or shadows, there is so much room for variety. With 50 different colours per pack the options are endless, seeing all these pretty pencils laid out is a joy for the senses.
On the other hand, if you like the solid look of a deep, warm felt tip marker you will certainly enjoy the Crayola Adult Coloring Fine Line Markers (RRP $7.99, 12-pack). Thanks to their fine tip you can pull off thin lines and tiny details with great precision, staying in the lines is easy with this colourful bunch. I have to admit I am usually more a pencil-lover but these vibrant markers really are amazing to work with.
The fine line markers are available in two different colour ways: the Classic Colors 12-pack is filled with bold, traditional shades and the Contemporary Colors 12-pack contains a slightly softer, modern colour palette. Now if only I had a cleaner and a cook to take care of my household so I could spend a few hours dreaming away above my new colouring book…sounds like bliss to me!
