Mom in Training: Color • Relax • Repeat!

Color • Relax • Repeat!

Have you hopped on the adult coloring book bandwagon yet? Come on be honest you have right? I'm not afraid to admit it. I love coloring because it gives me an outlet to just step back from everything and be myself in my own creativity. I have quite a few different books actually and pick what to color based on my mood. I like to sometimes color with pencil and sometimes with marker. It really just varies between what the picture looks like that I'm coloring. Some are easier to do with pencil than marker. Recently I had the opportunity to try out some new pencils and markers from the Prismacolor line and I have to say I'm really loving them.

Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils are ideal for unleashing your inner artist. Each colored pencil features a thick, soft core made from light-resistant pigments, to ensure smooth, rich lay-down and color saturation. They bring bold colors to life while the soft lead blends and shades seamlessly.

The colors are easily blended, slow to wear, break-resistant, and waterproof. Each 3.8 mm core is enclosed in a round cedar casing that is lacquered to match the core. Sold individually and in sets of 12, 24, 36, 48, 72, 132, and 150 there's a set made for everyone!

Prismacolor Premier Fine Tip Markers are a great way to color in those super fine lines in coloring books. Sometimes I prefer to use marker over colored pencils because I was a nice bright and bold color that I can't get with pencil lead. These markers do a really nice job of giving me that color, and because they have a fine tip they a great for even the smallest of spaces. And with their no-bleed quality I don't have to worry about the ink going through to my next page either!

Premium pigmented ink is acid-free, light-fast, permanent, water resistant, smear resistant when dry and won't bleed through paper. Available in a variety of tip sizes, brush tips and multi-count packages there's a marker set for everyone!

Buy it: Prismacolor products are available at, MacPherson's, and Dick Blick and other assorted retailers.
