From Laurence King Publishing we received the Tattoo Colout-in Postcards for writing a review on. We want to thank Laurence King Publishing very much.
Information on the internet: From the hand of MEGAMUNDEN, here are 20 detachable postcards waiting to be inked by you. Two flash sheets of full-colour stickers are also included so you can customize the drawings of sailors, samurai, and skulls – or send your own message in a bottle to friends and family.
Three card have already been coloured and all cards have golden accents, which gives a nice effect during the colouring.
I already owned a tattoobook that was a bit dissapointing in terms of designs, so I was curious what I would think of these designs. Despite the fact I don’t like sculls very much, the designs in this book weren’t that bad. It contains very nice designs. I will show you some examples now.
For colouring the owl I used Spectrum Noir markers. Markers always press through unfortunately. But because these cards are slightly thicker I didn’t think it was a problem. The backside can still be written on. The markers don’t run on this paper a lot either, so the colouring went well.
On the second design I used Staedler Triplus colour felt-tips. They coloured nicely on this paper per se, but when using the darker colours the drawn lines faded easily. This is a pity when you want to colour the peacock’s feathers along side of eachother in the same colour for example. I also found that the felt-tips don’t deliver their colour too well on this paper and sometimes it’s a bit blurry. But the paper doesn’t bulge, not even when you colour over the same spot multiple times.
On the third design I used Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. These also went over the paper smoothly and delivered their pigment well. The blending also went well.
The backside of the cards are nicely decorated in tattoo-style. There’s enough room for writing the address and a message to the addressee. There is no line between the address space and the message space, so you have to be careful not to write your message through the address.
Conclusion : Despite the fact that I wasn’t such a fan of tattoo designs for colouring, my opinion certainly changed because of these cards. The book contains very nice designs. They can be coloured nicely with all the materials that I used. And, when finished, the cards are nice for sending.
