I am really enjoying the coloring book. It is a beautiful way or directing my Bible reading. When I am coloring a scene or a verse, I pick up my Bible and read through it beforehand. That way I a immersed in the story and teaching while I am coloring. I have used a 365 day Bible before and find that this book is somewhat similar. I am coloring one scene and one verse per week and letting it direct my studies. I sincerely hope these artists will publish a similar book for the New Testament to round out my coloring and Bible study at the same time.
The designs are printed on one side of non-perforated white paper. The book is in a smaller format than most coloring books. The designs all stop well before the binding. The scenes have a framing line around them and the verses have all elements complete on the page. I really appreciate this care in design. It gives me a natural stopping point and saves me time and ink. I always try to mention when an artist takes this extra step. The binding is glued rather than sewn so you will have to cut pages out if you wish to remove them from the book. I was easily able to break the spine in order to get the book to lay flat.
My tests with various coloring mediums (see below for the full list) showed that all alcohol-based markers, water-based markers, India ink pens, and gel pens leaked through or cast a color shadow on the back of the page. My coloring pencils also showed a shadow but worked well with the paper. The soft lead pencils went on thick and blended well. The hard lead pencils left an indent at the back of the page. I am using a blotter page behind the page I am working on to keep ink and indents from harming the rest of the book.
These are the coloring medium that I use for testing. If there is something else you feel I should be testing, please let me know and I will see if I can add it to my growing pile:
Markers: 1) alcohol-based – Copic Sketch, Prismacolor double ended markers (brush and fine point), Sharpies (fine and ultra-fine) Bic Mark-its (fine and ultra-fine) and 2) water-based – Tombows dual end markers (brush and fine point), Stabilo 88, and Staedler triplus fineliners
India Ink: Faber-Castell PITT artist pens (brush tip)
Gel Pens: Sakura, Fiskars, Uni-ball Signo in the following sizes - 0.28/0.38/0.5/1.0 and Tekwriter
Coloring Pencils: Prismacolor Premier Soft Core, Derwent Colorsoft, Prismacolor Verithins, and Faber-Castell Polychromos
The cover is just a taste of what's inside and I love how it's partially colored to show what you can do. It's the perfect introduction to what's inside!
The pages are all so incredibly detailed that you can really take your time with each one making it a work of art. It is filled with scripture from the Old Testament to color an and inspiring illustrations that go along with them.
Some of them are really small spaces to color in so colored pencils seemed to work best for me. Crayons are too fat and I don't want the markers going through the pages. However, the back of each page is blank so if you were to put something underneath the page you are working on to keep it from bleeding through it would definitely work! I just prefer the soft look of pencils.
I like that this book makes me feel like I'm walking through the Bible so while it is relaxing to color, this particular book also makes it a spiritual experience.
There are 192 pages and it's a really thick book so it will probably take several months to go through The Bible Coloring Book and I intend to enjoy every moment!
