From Kleurboeken-winkel we received the book Favorite Dogs Coloring Book for testing and writing a review on. We want to thank Kleurboeken-winkel for this of course.
Information on the internet: Forty-two popular dogs — collie, poodle, dachshund, others — beautifully rendered. Captions, glossary, and brief history offer fascinating facts about humanity’s “best friend.” 40 black-and-white illustrations. Color illustrations on covers with an Introduction and captions by Soren Robertson.
My first impression of the little book is that the paper feels very nice and it contains a lot of nice designs from all sorts of dogs. The designer also gives an explanation about what colours to use for the dogs. This is very nice and very handy.
On my first design I used Faber Castell Polychromos. These are somewhat greasy pencils and they colour beautifully on this paper. I like this a lot!
On my second design I used Faber Castell Pitt brush and Stabilo. When using felt-tips it’s always more difficult to colour nice and even as you can see in this design. I tried using a rotating movement but even then you still see the starter. Unfortunately that is due to the felt-tip and can’t be blamed on the paper. The paper picks up the felt-tip nicely and it colours well. Sadly there is a bit of pressing through on the background.
Conclusion : It’s a very nice booklet with fun explanations about your favourite dogs. It’s also nice that the designer made the effort of pointing out how to colour the dogs. The book is not very suited for using felt-tips, because of the pressing through, but it is perfectly suited for using pencils. When you are a big fan of colouring dogs this booklet should definately be in your collection !
