Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between adult coloring books and children’s coloring books?

Adult coloring books are different from children’s coloring books because they are generally created for stress relief. They don’t usually feature cartoons and are more complex than children’s coloring books. Designs in adult coloring books challenge the fine motor skills of adults. They are meant to create a challenge for you to lose yourself in.

Should I use Markers or Pencils?

Markers leave you with bold colors and a different type of blending effect, which pencils do not offer. But on the other hand, pencils never bleed through the paper or smudge like markers.

Do I have to take an Adult Coloring class?

No, adult coloring is all about relaxing. However, a coloring class is a great way to improve your skills quickly by learning from the experience of others. You can get to the point where you are proud of your work faster. Who doesn’t want to develop that sort of skill and have a coloring sheet that you can display?
