Bring out your imagination, arouse your senses and creativity, and as you become engaged in the pleasurable, soothing activity of Coloring, it calms you and instantaneously starts reducing your stress level.
This book is a wonderful addition to your coloring library; a perfect gift school aged children, college students, or adults who enjoy coloring, and a much easier way to reduce stress than going to the gym.
1. 46 illustrations printed one per page (the back of each page is blank) on bright white, medium weight paper and the page numbers are listed on the back of the page not on the front where the picture is.
2. Illustrations include 15 delicate, circular doily type drawings(my favorites) Most of the rest are bordered full page designs from simple geometric shapes with very little detail to complicated very detailed geometric shape designs. There are a few miscellaneous sprinkled through the book l did see one paisley design.
3. The complexity and details vary with the pictures, some you will need sharpened colored pencils or Gel pens for and others crayons or wide markers would work. Place a piece of scrap paper under the page you are coloring in case your pens or markers bleed through the page. My Fiskars Gel Pens did not .
It's not exactly for beginners, which you can see from the first image I have posted (I'm semi-new to adult coloring books), but with patience and practice, this book is well worth the investment. The paper is a bit thin compared to others I have, however each page is one-sided so either tearing out the page or placing a blank piece of paper between the pages prevents the dreaded ink bleed-through. I have had great success using my Sharpie Ultra-Fine Point markers and Crayola colored pencils in this book.
Two improvements I would like to see are thicker paper and perforated pages.
Most importantly of all, it has been an integral part of keeping my anxiety and depression at bay. As a matter of fact, I took this book with me on a visit to see my in-laws, and the next thing I knew, four family members came to the table and asked if they, too, could color. It was nice to see everyone enjoying themselves and having pleasant conversation at the same time. I left the book on the table the whole week so everyone could use it whenever they felt the need.
This book is perfect for Dolphin lovers of all ages, perfect for Crayons, Markers and Perfect for using Color Pencils and Crayola Water Color pencils plus it is perfect for experimenting with different colored pencil techniques and my choice for these illustrations.
1. 30 illustrations printed one per page (the back of each page is blank) on medium weight, bright white paper.
2. All markers bleed through this paper so place two pieces of paper under the page you are coloring to prevent damage to the next illustration.
3. When I use colored pencils in this book, I place a clip board under the page I am coloring and fold the rest of the book under the clip board, this way I don’t leave indented lines in the underlying illustrations.
4. The details in the illustrations vary from picture to picture with most being medium sized details, there are no tiny details in this book, to me this book calls out for colored pencils and color pencil techniques but crayons, markers, and pens will also work well on most of the pictures. Some of the simple illustrations would be perfect for adding your own unique patterns to the outlined dolphins.
5. 11 of the illustrations are of Dolphins centered on the page and each adorned in a different variety of designs, the rest vary from collages of just dolphins to dolphins incorporated into patterns or swimming among the waves, jumping over the waves or swimming along the ocean floor.
