Coloring Books For Adults Can Help You De_Stress. It turns out that adult coloring books can be used as something other than an ironic gift from Urban Outfitters. In Europe, more people are using coloring books to reduce stress _ so excuse us while we go find where we put our crayons. No, seriously. Contrary to what some may think, coloring is not just for kids.
Use Crayola. These are the best and have the best color saturation. Use a paper that will grip the color evenly. I like Stonehenge or illustration board. Have a good hand_held sharpener handy. Always try to keep a point on the crayon. This makes it go on more evenly. Apply the crayon in a professional manner. Just like you would any other fine art tool, use control and be deliberate. Don't become five years old again!
