Taking Adult Colouring To A Whole New Level With Querkles

Like many others, I have become a massive fan of the popular adult colouring books. Colouring is a fantastic way to wind down after a long day and it’s very therapeutic. This week I discovered Querkles and I was instantly hooked. Querkles takes adult colouring to a whole new level.

With Querkles, you can go beyond just colouring.  As a child, I used to love the paint by numbers pictures and these amazing adult colour by numbers books really takes me back. The size of these books is nothing like the standard adult colouring books, they are huge!

If you have an artistic flare then these would be perfect to put in a frame when you are finished. The style of the colouring kind of reminds me of  the Andy Warhol art with the shift of light and colour.

You can use any colours as long as you have a variety of light and dark shades. I used WHSmith’s felt tips but as some of the gaps you need to colour are very small I would suggest using colouring pencils instead. It doesn’t take long before you start to see the details of the faces. There are 20 portraits of famous icons to complete. My favourite has to be Marilyn Monroe.

The 1,000 Dot-To-Dot Book: Twenty Iconic Portraits To Complete Yourself By Thomas Pavitte

As soon as this adult dot-to-dot book arrived, my partner grabbed it and he has been sat in our garden completing this portrait ever since! With 20 iconic portraits to get through, this should keep him busy on his days off and out of my hair for a while ;)

Each section of numbers are coloured differently so it’s easy to tell what colours you need for each part. It’s very rewarding seeing the well-known faces come to life. Just like the colour-by-numbers book, these pages can be easily removed so you can frame and display them. Again I wouldn’t use the felt tips on this as you need something with a thinner nib. I would also recommend using a ruler so you can get your lines perfectly straight.

With Father’s Day coming up, these would make a perfect gift!
