Cian Bell. Coloring For Adult. April 03rd , 2021.
I bought this for my 12-year-old and she loves it. She mostly uses colored pencils to color but the one-sided pages in this book give her the option of using gel pens, markers and paint without having to worry about the colors bleeding through and ruining the other images
Since this book contains 4 of the Coloring Book Cafe previously published coloring books, that makes it a great value for money. Illustrations in this book are beautiful, and I would highly recommend it.
I love the cute pictures! There are every baby animal in this color book. Coloring Book Cafe books always have beautiful drawings to color. This is a fun color book for any age.
These are really cute images if you like a more cartoon baby animal style. They are sweet pictures for any age but I purchased specifically to color with my 7 year old granddaughter. I like that they are just simple and cute one sided images. Just calming, coloring fun
When I tested a water-based marker over a small area (Crayola’s Super Tip), the paper didn’t hold up well. The paper did take Wanshui (a.k.a Guang Hui, an oil-based budget- friendly pencil), Schpirerr Farben (oil-based), and Prismacolor Premiere (wax-based) well. I did not try any blending or burnishing pencils, or solvents. If review readers choose to use wet media, such as markers or gel pens, or using solvent blending agents (alcohol, baby oil, mineral spirits, petroleum jelly, and so on) they probably should use cardstock behind pages to protect the other pages, or consider removing their working page from the book, or consider pre-prepping the pages with a fluid-tolerant treatment.
The images are printed on single sides (and the reversed side is white, not black), with non-perforated paper. I like the fact that this book has not only the ”This book belongs to” plate on the inside cover, but two blank pages at the back, because these areas make good areas for experimenting with media. The paper took Sharpies (which are alcohol-based) pretty well over a small area. I usually only use Sharpies for small accent areas.
I personally wish the pages were perforated, because I find that I quickly, unintentionally dog-ear books (and often damage uncolored pages) as I color, if I don’t remove pages and use a clipboard to color. My dominant hand is unreliable, so I’m reluctant to use a utility knife and ruler to remove pages. The images are cute and I really like most of them. I’m pleased with my purchase and have already colored a few pages. A good value for the money because this is an omnibus of four coloring books.
