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.
Quality Matters. Not all colored pencils are the same. Cheap colored pencils tend to have harder wax leads and less pigment which mean they produce less vibrant colors and have a tendency to leave some white spaces uncovered in the grain of the paper. Because the lead is hard, cheaper pencil leads often have a tendency break and if the lead breaks throughout the length of the pencil you can be left with something that is unusable.
