1. What differentiates an adult coloring book to a children’s coloring book?
No rule states that adults cannot enjoy coloring children’s books. However, there is one thing that differentiates adult coloring books and children coloring books: detail.
Usually, kids’ coloring pages are made up of simple images with large areas to color. Adult coloring books, on the other hand, typically include intricate details and patterns — and it is precisely the complexity of the designs, what makes relaxation possible.
Hence, the popularity of books that include mandalas, zentangles, and other repetitive graphics.
2. What are the best mediums for coloring books?
There are many opinions on this subject, and unfortunately, there is no definitive answer. The best medium to use while coloring your pages will highly depend on the style you use and the pages you are coloring.
Nonetheless, here are a few tips to consider:
– For detailed and intricate designs, use fine liner pens or colored pencils.
– For simpler designs and shapes, try using gel pens. They are a fun medium and give your artwork an extra punch.
– Stay away from watercolors and markers. They tend to bleed through the page and can ruin your book.
– If you are thinking of showcasing your artwork, make sure you choose a medium that stands the test of time. Colored pencils and crayons are usually your best option.
