"Love it! The pictures in this book are beautiful! The book is well made and the paper is medium weight. Pictures are on one side, so that's always good. I know I'm going to love coloring this." --M.Oliver
"Another fantastic book from one of my favorite coloring book authors! Beautifully detailed pictures on one sided bright white paper." --Amazon Customer
"Just like all Jason Hamilton's coloring books this is just as beautiful as his others. I have them all. This one brings fantasy to it's best. Every page is unique. Another thing I like is some pages are easier to color then others. None of them or so difficult that it takes days to complete. You will not be disappointed!" --Val

Great book with mid-to-high level complexity. If you love mermaids, you will love this book.
I came across Mr. Hamilton's mermaid designs in his recent contribution to “Adult Coloring Book Treasury 2” and was in high hopes that he would soon release a mermaid book. Just a week or so later, here it is. Along with a video and other sample photos from this book, I will include the mermaid that I colored for Treasury 2.
In this book, the focus of the designs is on mermaids. There is a merman and even a human but, for the most part, there are mermaids. There are even a few mermaids with their children.
The designs have a nice level of detail. There is plenty of room for shading or adding your own details, if you wish. The elements on the full size pages are a good size and are not difficult to color with any type of coloring medium that I use. The smaller (4 x 6 inch) versions may require ultra-fine nibs or sharp pencil tips but that is to be expected with a design that has been sized down.
This is what I experienced when I was coloring in this book and testing the paper with my coloring medium. In the comments section below, I will list the coloring medium I used for testing this book and which I usually use for coloring my projects.
24 Large Mermaid designs with 24 4 x 6 inch duplicate copies
Printed one side of the page
Paper is thin, white, slightly rough and non-perforated
Designs do not merge into the binding area. They have a framing line around the outer edge
Coloring book opens to flat position fairly easily
Alcohol-based markers bleed through this paper
Water-based markers spot through this paper
Gel pens and India ink pens leave colorful shadows on the back of the page. India ink can bleed through if it is applied heavily or in multiple layers.
Colored Pencils work well with this slightly rough paper. Both oil and wax pencils provide good pigment with multiple layers, layer multiple colors well and blend well using a pencil style blending stick. Hard lead pencils can dent through to the back of the page.
I use a blotter of card stock under my working page. Several sheets of heavier weight paper work well, too. This keeps seeping ink and dents from messing up the pages below.
