When I first started buying adult colouring in books I read a lot online about the types of pens and pencils that were best to use and a lot of people were recommending these pens so I plumped for them figuring there must be a reason why so many people were recommending them and I am glad that I did because they are fantastic for colouring in.
They have a nice fine tip which is wonderful for adult colouring because the books are usually much more intricate than kids colouring books and there is a lot of fine detail which needs a steady hand and a fine tipped pen instead of those thick felt tips that you get with kids colouring pens.
The colours are beautiful. There were 20 different colours in the pack that I bought and all of them are colours which I use in colouring. The colours are bright and vibrant and help make the picture on the page pop even more. They colour like a dream and there is no need for any pushing of the felt onto the page as it just glides on the paper. Even though they are quite wet looking when they go on the page they don’t smudge or bleed out so the drawing which I have coloured in stays looking good. They also don’t soak through the page which is important because I don’t want to colour one picture in and then realise that the next page has been ruined by the colour of the felt tip soaking through.
The best thing about these pens though is that they continue to colour for a long time. When I have coloured with my kids using their felt tips I have noticed that they dry out so quickly and become useless after only being used a couple of times but these just don’t dry out even when I have forgotten to replace the lid on them.
They aren’t the cheapest pens that you can buy and they cost me £11.99 for a pack of 20 pens but I think that they are worth it especially if like me you plan on spending quite a bit of your free time colouring because they will last longer than most pens and also just because they make the picture that you have spent ages on look amazing when you have finished it.
