Adult colouring books

Recently got into these as a stress-reliever and a way to improve hand-eye co-ordination.

Anyone else into them?

My wife got me one, I find it quite relaxing and kind of takes me back to childhood where life was simple. Excellent stress relief.

I find it good to relax with as well, very addictive.

What do you guys use to colour with?

Ive been using coloured pencils mostly but have been moving onto felt tips as they are easier on my carpal tunnel.

Really love the psychedelic designs on offer and the mandalas, do you guys have a design preference?

I prefer colouring pencils, leaves a Much better overall effect for me and doesn't effect the picture on the reverse side unlike felt. Can also go lighter to leave a nice pastel colour and shade in places, with felt its all or nothing.

Eta: I'm currently doing "Millie marrota's wild savannah"

Cool, i think maybe my pencils are too hard as they need a bit of pressure for leave a decent mark.

luckily the book im on atm has thick pages so the ink doesnt go through.

I love colouring :) I like the really intricate fiddly pictures and I have a set of 'staedtler triplus' fine liners that are really nice to use, they are no good for big patches of colour though

watercolour pencils are great for colouring books you can wet them for deeper colour and shading :)

Adult Dot to Dot is where it's at now, I'm currently doing adult sandpit which is like kids sandpit but with added glass to make it more hardcore.

my stepdaughter has some issues with depression and anxiety and she loves them. Zen tasks I suppose. Me, I go for a walk but I like to see the quiet industry going on, the absorption.

Had to look the word up 'absorption' with that weird p. English teacher for years, I can usually spell any word but it's like I'd never written that before. You live and learn. Absorption.

there are some very cool colouring books now, it is starting to get a wee bit hipsterish round the edges. My stepdaughter prefers disney princesses. She's 22 but there's no shame attached to disnophilia these days it seems.
