The designs are quite detailed and will take hours to finish. They are not what I consider intricate as the elements to color do not require special small nib pens/markers. I am able to use a wide variety of coloring medium on these designs.
While you can have access to .PDFs when you purchase this book, my review is based on the book as it is received from Amazon. That way you will know what the pages look like and how they accept color. I like that the publisher provides the digital version as well so you can choose the paper you wish to use and/or to color the pictures as many times as you choose.
This is what I found while coloring in this book and testing the paper with my coloring medium:
25 x 2 each – Angel Designs
Paper is typical of CreateSpace: white, thin, slightly rough and non-perforated. The back of the page is printed black.
The designs do not merge into the binding. There is a heavy framing line at the outer edges of the design to give the project a more finished look, especially for framing. There is a slight shadowing effect to the framing line which gives the image an almost 3D effect.
Glue Binding (there is room to cut the pages out if you choose to do so.)
Though you cannot see the bleed-through easily due to the back of the page being printed in black, I recommend the use of a blotter page when working in this book. I use a page of card stock or several sheets of heavyweight paper under my working page. It keeps seeping ink and marring dents from ruining the pages below.
Alcohol-based markers bleed through the page quickly.
Water-based markers bleed through in spots.
Gel pens and India ink pens leave shadows on back of the page. India ink can bleed through if you apply heavily or multiple coats.
Coloring Pencils work well with this paper. I found that I could layers the same color for deeper pigment or multiple colors and I could blend easily using a blending stick. I tested both oil and wax based pencils. I also found that hard lead pencils leave dents through the paper.
I've been patiently waiting for Jade Summer's "Angels" adult coloring book to be released. It was worth the wait. I've heard many stories about angels in my life; From my grandmother to my aunts and older cousins. I remember beautiful vintage pictures of angels. My favorite was the "Guardian Angel" watching over two small children as they walked a dangerous path on a dark, rainy night. The angels within this coloring book remind me of my perception of angels at 9 years old. The angels from Heaven are beautiful and every one had to be strong. The tasks they were given weren't always easy. I like the way that Jade Summer has illustrated her version of angels. I can see a similarity of what I imagined compared to her drawings. I love the picture of the angel surrounded by flowers and gently petting a rabbit in her hands. The picture exudes serenity and kindness, while her wings are a reminder of her strength. Angels are everywhere; in the skies, on the Earth, during the day and the night. All of Jade's angel illustrations appear to be truly planned to look the way that they do. I can't pick a single one and tell you that, "she looks like a fairy." There is one angel holding a wand that is a little unexpected. This is a mortal's translation of a Heavenly being. There is no rulebook and this is just a book review offering my honest opinion. I think that this is a beautifully illustrated adult coloring book that will provide many pleasant hours of enjoyment. I know that I will be enjoying coloring with multiple mediums. If only someone would invent a magical pen and pencil with all of the hues of the rainbow and with a simple twist, glitter would stay on any kind of paper, exactly where you put it. That would truly be a miracle. I hope that you will enjoy this beautiful book of Angels as much as I have. **I did receive a 'review' copy in exchange for an honest review.**
