The best pencils, pens markers for coloring?

Once you’ve gotten your new coloring book or coloring pages (hopefully, one of ours!), you’ve gotta color in your new images with something!

Have you ever wondered which are the best coloring pencils, markers and/or pens to use?

We’re sure you have. This is an important question for colorists. Especially if you’re looking to plunk down serious money for high quality coloring implements.

We’ll we’ve got good news for you today. Claire from the Colouring with Claire blog (she’s in the UK so she spells “coloring” with a “u”!) has created a very cool guide on coloring pencils, pens and markers.

We think it’s misnamed the “Ultimate Beginner’s Guide to Colouring for Adults” because we think anyone at any stage of adult coloring can benefit from her guide.

Best of all, if you’re on a tight budget, she even includes reviews of lower-priced coloring accessories. Several of which are surprisingly good buys!

So hop on over to Claire’s Ultimate Beginner’s Guide to Colouring for Adults and…

Happy Coloring!

Video Review of our Coloring Book!

The ladies over at Toys and Coffee have done a video review of our coloring book, CurioZities’ Curious Book of Coloring for Adults: Mandalas Volume 1.

They both liked it! In honor of the great review, we’re offering a special discount on our coloring book if you purchase it on CreateSpace.

For a limited time only, go to https://www.createspace.com/5757432, enter promo code HRETHQRP at checkout, and save $3.00. This brings the price to about $5.97, the lowest we’ve ever offered it.

Winners of the April 2016 Tax Day Coloring Bonanza event

April 2016 Tax Day Coloring Bonanza Okay, we’ve got winners for the prize giveaways during our hour of the April 2016 Tax Day Coloring Bonanza from last Friday (April 15). Woohoo!

As you may recall, we were giving away one print/paperback copy of our adult coloring book, CurioZities’ Curious Book of Coloring for Adults: Mandalas Volume 1, plus a set of gel pens; three one-year subscriptions to our monthly adult coloring club; and five PDF versions of our adult coloring book.

The winners have all been notified by email.

There’s a small glitch; we can’t provide the names of the winners because a full name is not necessary either to buy the PDF coloring book, to download one of the 3-coloring page packs we gave away during the event, or to simply sign up to follow us by email (it is necessary for subscribing to our adult monthly coloring club, but we wanted everyone to be even so we’re going with that winner’s partial email as well). And we didn’t ask or make it a condition of entering any of the contests.

So we’ll list the winners’ PARTIAL email addresses only, below (we don’t want them getting spam because of us!). The winners already know who they are anyway (as mentioned before, they’ve already been notified).

So, here goes, the winners of our April 2016 Tax Day Coloring Bonanza giveaways:

PDF coloring book (five winners)

  • kerbear*****
  • lisacamp******
  • rawr****
  • Halfpint*********
  • momu******

Monthly adult coloring club (three winners)

  • m.les*****
  • tine_e******
  • snick******

Grand Prize–print/paperback adult coloring book and gel pens

  • vperk********

Congratulations to the winners and thanks to all of you who helped make our event a huge success!

Tax Day Deals and more extended to April 18

If you missed our Tax Day Coloring Bonanza on Facebook Friday night, you missed one fun party! But hey, just because you couldn’t make it doesn’t mean you need to miss out on our Tax Day deals, giveaways, freebies and more.

We’re extending all of our Tax Day deals until 11:59 p.m. EDT on Monday, April 18, 2016 (which coincidentally enough, is this year’s deadline to file your federal income taxes in the U.S.).

So here are the details…

Giveaway #1 – Our paperback, printed edition coloring book and a set of gel pens

One lucky person will win our print edition edition coloring book, CurioZities’ Curious Book of Coloring for Adults: Mandalas Volume 1, as well as a set of 48 gel pens for coloring. Entering this giveaway does require a purchase by the end of our Tax Day deals (this is the only giveaway that does): you must join our Monthly Adult Coloring Pages Download Club, where you get 30 new, exclusive adult coloring designs you can download and print each month. The winner of this giveaway will be chosen at random from those who joined by the Tax Day deal deadline. Sorry, this giveaway is only open to folks who live in the U.S.

We are offering a special 40% discount on monthly memberships to everyone; additionally, just for this event, we’re offering yearly payment along with the 40% discount for insane savings. Whichever way you decide to go, make sure you use the promo code “intro” (without the quote marks) and order by April 18 to enjoy your special savings.

Giveaway #2 – Free one-year subscription to our Monthly Adult Coloring Pages Download Club

Three lucky persons will win a free one-year subscription to our Monthly Adult Coloring Pages Download Club. Entry to this giveaway is free and easy. Simply visit our online coloring store, enter your email address at the top of the page where it says “Follow me for updates on what I am creating,” and hit the “Follow” button. That’s it! Winners will be chosen at random from those who’ve entered their email addresses. This giveaway is open to anyone anywhere, except where prohibited by law. No need to be a U.S. resident. But you must enter by the April 18 deadline.

Giveaway #3 – Free digital download coloring book

Five lucky persons will win a free copy of the digital/PDF edition of our coloring book CurioZities’ Curious Book of Coloring for Adults: Mandalas Volume 1. Entry is similar to entering Giveaway #2; in fact, entering in Giveaway #2 will automatically also enter you into Giveaway #3. Additionally, those who entered Giveaway #1 and joined our Monthly Adult Coloring Pages Download Club are also automatically entered into this giveaway. As before, winners will be chosen at random and you can be from anywhere to enter, so long as it’s not prohibited by law where you live. But again, you must enter by the April 18 deadline.

One additional note on the giveaways listed above: winners will be chosen and announced later during the week of April 18th, most likely no later than Thursday that week (April 21). The announcement will take place here on this blog, by email, on our CurioZities Coloring Facebook page, and on our CurioZities Coloring Twitter account.

Last but not least, the freebies

We’ve got some freebies, too! Like everything else, they’re only available until April 18th. We’re got three 3-packs of coloring pages you can download, print and color. The 3-packs are available at our online store. Just be sure to enter “0” for the price.
