Each of the stories featured in this book has one or two designs representing it. The tales/stories in this book include: Thumbalina, The Tortoise with a Pretty Daughter, The Boy who drew Cats, The Wizard of Oz, the Snow Queen, Firebird, Masha and the Bear, Alice in Wonderland, The Star Maiden, The Selkie Bride, The Little Mermaid, Swan Lake, Cinderella, The Snake Prince, Gypsy Queen, The Fair Maid and the Snow White Unicorn, Vasilisa the Fair, Beauty and the Beast, The Dragon Princess, Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp, Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, Tsar Saltan, Rapunzel, The Bamboo Cutter and the Moon Child, Snow White, and the Princess and the Pea.
While at first I thought there were a number of wall-paper style repeating designs, when I looked closely as I started to color, I found that one only one design was a repeating page. That one (of various animals near the end of the book) is charming and should be fun to color. The other pages had similar elements but a close look revealed that there were differences through the page(s) which is not what I consider wall-paper designs.
This is what I experienced while coloring in this book and testing the paper with my coloring medium.
96 pages of designs inspired by fairy tales (includes title and intro pages)
Printed both sides of the page
Paper is medium weight, white, slightly smooth and perforated.
Many designs spread across two pages
Designs cross over the perforations into the binding area
If you remove pages, especially on the two-page spreads, you will lose integral portions of the designs.
The book opens fairly flat for ease of coloring.
Alcohol-based markers bleed through the paper rapidly.
Water-based markers and India ink pens spotted through the paper and left shadows of color on the back of the page.
Gel pens did not bleed through but required additional drying time.
Colored Pencils worked well with this paper except for blending with a pencil style blending stick. While it is somewhat smooth, it still has sufficient tooth (roughness) to grip pigment well. I tested both oil and wax based pencils and liked both with this paper. I was able to get deep pigment with multiple layers of the same color.
Where I had problems was with a pencil style blending stick. I found that the blender smeared the lines of the artwork to the point that my page looked bad. I tried various wet blenders and found that those worked well.
