The best coloring tools for adults
For professional-feeling coloring pages that are relaxing to color, try using a nicer paper. Thicker, smoother paper cost just a tiny bit more, but makes your experience so much more enjoyable.
I use and recommend HP 32# paper for coloring pages. It’s thicker and brighter than “regular” copy paper.” It’s also acid free, which means your pages won’t yellow over time if you decide to keep them. The paper is very smooth, which means pencils and crayons glide and color easily on it.
This HP 24# paper is a couple of dollars less than the 32# option. It is also nicer than standard paper and very bright white, so it’s another solid choice. (I worked at a copy center after college and am kind of a paper nerd.)
- Made in USA: HP Papers is sourced from renewable forest resources and has achieved production with 0% deforestation in North America.
- Heavyweight premium printing: HP Premium32 is a heavyweight (32 pounds), brighter (100 bright) and whiter (163 whiteness) paper with a super-smooth...

Gel pens might not always come to mind when you’re looking for a coloring tool, but they can be really fun. Gel pens are great for blending colors. Even if you don’t want to use all your ink coloring the whole page, they’re fun for adding sparkly accents. My husband loves to color with gel pens. See this post for the best gel pens for coloring, including a budget pick that actually works. The short version is that the pens shown below are the best overall and best budget pick:
Although Copics are amazing, my favorite markers for coloring are inexpensive Crayola Supertips. They’re affordable, easy to find, and fun for adults and children. They have a fine tip for details, but can also be used on the nib’s side for broader areas of coloring. The caps don’t always look exactly like the actual ink color (a common problem with markers), so you may want to do test swatches.
- Sold as 50/ST.
- Markers have tips that are smooth, not scratchy.
- Fine line markers with a versatile tip that draws thick or thin lines.
Prismacolors are, hands down, the best colored pencils for coloring. Even the “student” lines of Prismacolor colored pencils are softer and creamier than brands like Crayola. Prismacolors color easily and are great for blending. My husband can do really amazing things with blending our Prismacolor pencils.
- Soft, thick cores are perfect for shading and shadows
- Ultra-smooth, even color laydown
- Lightfast, richly saturated pigments
