Since I was a child, I’ve enjoyed coloring. With crayons. I didn’t care much for colored pencils. Probably because there weren’t as many color options as in my box of 96 crayons.
But crayons are too messy for the new adult coloring books. For books with good quality paper, I’ve discovered that I like gel pens. Everything looks sharper in ink. However, not just any pen will do. Pilot pens, which are my favorite for writing are terrible for coloring.
Of course you can get special pens at places like Hobby Lobby. Coloring is a hobby that I’m not willing to spend a lot of money on. I might spend $40 on yarn, but not pens.
That’s why I was excited to find a set of Wal-Mart gel pens for $5. The cheapness makes them terrible for writing, but perfect for coloring. The yellow sparkle pen was exactly what I needed for Belle’s dress.
