ADULT COLOURING

 

"Adult Colouring" doesn’t just add colour to your life – it can also help you leave your stress behind and discover the magic of your own creativity. It’s no wonder, then, that millions of adults are getting into colouring and reaching happily for their colouring books!

This page is all about how you can get creative and have even more fun with your colouring book. As well as inspiration and tips on mastering the basics, you will find templates by adult colouring icon Johanna Basford – as well as the perfect pencils for colouring, of course.

 
Get
creative!

Colouring both requires and develops creativity. With a huge variety of colours and different types of pencils you have limitless opportunities to express yourself. Colouring templates are the ideal way to get started.

Find
some peace
and quiet!

Put your smartphone away – don’t even look at the screen. With a pencil in your hand you can enter a whole new world! Colouring has a meditative effect, because it gives you a break from the stresses and strains of everyday life.

Discover
your
potential!

Colouring stimulates the right side of your brain and stops you getting bogged down in your thoughts. So you won’t just develop your creativity and your memory, you’ll improve your concentration as well.

Get in
touch with
your senses!

That great smell of freshly sharpened pencils, the natural feel and structure of the paper, the gleaming colours: colouring awakens your senses and reconnects you with the analogue world.

The Queen of colouring books
JOHANNA BASFORD

Scottish illustrator Johanna Basford is the author of the colouring books “Secret Garden”, “Enchanted Forest”, “Lost Ocean” and "Johanna’s Christmas”. The bestselling “Secret Garden” has sold 1.5 million copies on the English-speaking market alone.

Even as a child Johanna loved being outside and roaming through her grandparents’ garden. That’s one of the reasons she enjoys drawing plants and animals so much.  She has been using STAEDTLER pencils since she was a student, and they are the only ones she recommends for her colouring books.
