How Find The Best Coloring Supplies For Adults
This is Part 2 of a 3-part series on How To Get Started Coloring For Less Than $100:
Part 2 – [You Are Here] – How to Find The Best Coloring Supplies For Adults
In the first part of this series, I recommended five great adult coloring books designed to get you started on your coloring journey. The best part is that purchasing all five of these excellent books will only cost you $43.11 out of our $100 budget leaving you with $56.89 to spend on pens, pencils, and the other supplies that you will need to get started coloring.
In this second part of the series, I want to talk about the best way to spend that $56.89 on coloring supplies.
Finding The Most Comfortable Way To Color
I learned through experience that I needed more than just books to color. I live in a small house, and I don’t have a craft room. I needed to find a way to be able to store my coloring supplies safely, and still be able to pull them out quickly when I have time to color.
I also have back problems, so coloring in bed is the most comfortable place for me to color. I use a lap desk, with a clipboard and a light to make coloring more comfortable.
Maybe you have a craft room, maybe you color in bed, in a comfortable chair, or perhaps you color someplace else. Wherever it is, you should color where you are most comfortable and can have the most fun.
These recommendations are based on what works for other colorists with back problems and me. They may or may not be the best solutions for you. Again, you should do whatever works best to make coloring fun for you!
