Derwent Unwind In The Wilds Colouring Book And Coloursoft Pencils Giveaway

Adult drawing and colouring is really becoming popular, as more and more people rediscover the benefits of sitting without a screen and letting your creativity flow. Derwent have been making pencils and other drawing materials in Cumbria since 1832, and they are giving one of my readers the Christmas gift of relaxation...


The Unwind In The Wilds Colouring Book is printed on artist quality acid-free 150gsm paper. A few of the almost 90 pages have added activities, and there are hidden collections for you to find through the book.


As you'd hope, there are lots of drawings to colour, including plenty you have to complete too, with some really intricate ones towards the back.

 

If you have forgotten everything you learned in school art class then don't worry, there are tips and techniques on how to use colouring pencils, as well as layering and blending colour, so you can get the most out of your colouring book.


Included is a pack of 10 Derwent Coloursoft Pencils. They are very soft, and great for blending colours, so you can create many more shades. I had a little try and they flow really nicely on the page, you barely have to apply any pressure.


The Derwent Unwind In The Wilds Colouring Book And Pencils Set has an rrp of £19.99. All Derwent products are available to buy via the Derwent website shop, or from good art suppliers.


Derwent are giving one of my readers the Unwind In The Wilds Colouring Book And Pencils Set as a prize in my Christmas Present Giveaways. Entry to the giveaway is by Gleam form below, open to UK entrants only and it will end at midnight Sunday 4th December.

For help if you are new to Gleam, and to enter my other Christmas Present Giveaways, including LEGO, Star Wars, Family Games, Books and Jewellery, please go to my Giveaways Page...
