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.
Get even! Producing a nice even color with your coloring pencil is all down to pressure. Push harder on your page for darker coloring, applying little pressure will producer a much lighter color. It is tempting to put lots of pressure on the pencil to produce the darkest color _ don't do it! Too much pressure will likely cause you to break your pencil leads, produce a scratchy finish to your coloring and give you less control. Instead, try applying your pencil with a little less pressure and use small circular motions with the pencil to get an even finish.
