Art Alternatives Review
I received the products mentioned in this review from Art Alternatives in exchange for an honest review. The opinions contained within this review are my original unbiased thoughts and may vary from the opinions of others.
About Art Alternatives: Art Alternatives is dedicated to providing you with affordable, quality art supplies. For everyday essentials, they’re the smart alternatives to high-priced name brands.
What We Thought: I have really gotten into the world of adult coloring these days. It is something I started to relieve stress and just have some “me time” and to just escape from the everyday trials and tribulations of life.
When I discovered Art Alternatives I knew they had some tools for my hobby that I just had to have! I got the fortune of reviewing a great set of markers and a set of colored pencils. The quality is top notch and I was honestly impressed. I have had so many markers that are messy, run on my paper and just absolutely make a mess.
Here is a photo of a picture I colored with the markers to show the quality:
These markers stayed within the lines, which is something that adult coloring enthusiasts love! I felt like these glided across the paper and did not cause the paper to get crumbly either.
We also got to review the Giant Rainbow Marker Set which our son loved. He got right to coloring his Doc McStuffins book and I found that he didn’t struggle with using them at all. He has really gotten into using other kinds of drawing tools, especially after seeing me sit down and color with markers. We love that these washed off of his skin easily and were not messy at all. The colors are brilliant and there were 100 in this kit! I felt like we had every color plus some to choose from and I admit to coloring with him using these for a whole afternoon.
Last but certainly not least and with many apologies to Art Alternatives for not having an original photo we got to review their awesome colored pencils. Here is a stock photo to show you what they are like as well:
These pencils admittedly took some getting used to for me, but not because of their quality but because I had been so used to using other types of markers that are really bright. I had forgotten the pure beauty of a colored pencil and really got into using these. I love that there are 24 useful colors that came pre-sharpened and ready to put right to paper.
It doesn’t matter if you are into sketching, adult coloring like myself or even painting Art Alternatives has something for everyone! They even have an excellent kids selection for all of the young artists in your life.
