Eimear O’Leary. Coloring For Adult. July 20th , 2020.
Christmas gift adored by recipient. Cute animal pictures yet not super childish. Great quality This book is awesome. Cute drawings with wide variety of darling animals.
I love this cute coloring book.The animals are adorable.Im a grandmother and still enjoy coloring with my grandkids and they love it too.
This book is printed on thin, rather smooth paper. For comparison, if readers are an experienced adult colorist, the paper most closely matches a thinner version of Dover Publicatons’ Creative Haven paper. Because of the lack of texture (tooth) to the paper, I’m not sure how many layers of pigment very seriously artistic colorists could build up using soft core, blendable pencils without using solvents (I didn’t try that hard and only used a few light layers).
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’m an adult ”colorist” using coloring as a form of occupational therapy for my injured dominant hand, so this review is in context to my experience. I’ve never purchased from this publisher before.
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.
