Adult coloring books are all the rage right now. The general public is finding out what artists have known for years…coloring is good for you. Not only is it a means of self-expression but it also reduces stress, anxiety and can actually improve one’s self-esteem. I thought it would be fun to share a technique on how to incorporate Imagine products to jazz up your coloring books and pages.

Difficulty Level: Beginner
Time to complete: 1-3 hours, depending on design plus drying time
