Being creative is a great way to express yourself, reduce stress and anxiety and provides a sense of accomplishment by making a final product. Using your creative mind can also help promote problem-solving and inspire novel ideas in other areas of your life. You may think that you’re not artistic but everyone is creative. Here are some products that can help you bring out your inner artist and enable you to produce a masterpiece (or at least something you can be proud you made).
For digital art, the Wacom tablet is of the best-known pieces of hardware – it’s like painting directly on a virtual canvas, with no mess. With a pen that has thousands of levels of pressure, you can sketch, shade and colour your own designs.
The 4K resolution on LCD screens (with amazing colour accuracy) makes your art pop and Some tablets are even VR capable! If you can’t afford the Pro version (or you just don’t need all those fancy features), consider their Smartpads for keeping digital notes and diagrams.
You don’t need a big, fancy 3D printer to create fun, plastic sculptures at home. 3Doodler is an easy-to-use wireless pen that allows you to create a multitude of objects like travel tags, pins, flowers, money clips, phone cases, coasters and more, using plastics in many colours, including wood.
