Best Paper for Coloring

If you’ve been around Coloring Bliss any length of time you know that Steve and I have a passion for paper! We LOVE high quality paper and enjoy sharing that love with you. Whenever we set about finding a paper for a specific purpose, we do a TON of testing. We spend a lot of time, and often money, in trying to find that perfect paper–be it for colored pencils, markers, mixed-media, watercolor and more.

Learn how to read the label on a package of paper. We also teach you how to match the right paper with the right coloring tools! It makes ALL the coloring difference in the world. We share with you the best paper for colored pencils, markers, mixed-media, watercolor, black and toned.

We’re excited to share with you our current recommendations for our favorite papers for printing coloring pages and coloring.

    I have a grandson who is turning 11 soon. He loves to draw, paint and color. He is learning (self taught)to use shadowing in his drawings.
    What would you suggest I get the right paper for him?

      That’s wonderful! I would recommend our favorite Mixed-Media paper for him.
