Information on the internet: Spectrum Noir’s new metallic pencils are richly pigmented and can be used to create bold, highly reflective designs. They are especially effective on darker coloured papers, where their effects can really shine!
Each pencil is filled with bright, reflective colour that will shimmer and add dimension to any sketch or colouring project. The colours are water-soluble and can be brushed over to produce beautiful luminescent washes.

  • Printed one-sided on 100lb archival quality, acid-free paper
  • 48 stunning grayscale photographs of flowers, plants and landscapes for you to color
  • Perforated for easy removal and framing of your colored picture
  • Watermarked on the back of each picture for the colorist’s name and date

Immerse yourself in the solitude of an arid desert, turn the page and take shelter in the stillness of an ancient forest. From wide-sweeping landscapes to the most delicate botanicals, Beautiful Nature harnesses the restorative power of the natural world.

Simply color over the gray, matching light and dark tones to reveal lifelike shading. Saturate the grayscale with heavy color, use the lightest of touches or simply let it be. Flood the page with vibrant brights or allow a softer color palette to emerge. As the colorist, you are free to immerse yourself in the space between black and white, and explore the many shades of your imagination.

Printed on acid-free, archival quality paper, perforated for framing, each piece offers an opportunity to explore your inner artist. Use your colors to breathe life into the grayscale, and lose yourself in the process. Whether your happy place is toes buried in the sand, nose-deep in a bloom or on a mountain top, Beautiful Nature can take you there, if only for a moment.

Grayscale adult coloring books introduce a new way to color. It may appear a bit intimidating but these grayscale coloring books are surprisingly simple. Just let the gray guide you when deciding where and how dark or light to color. Your image will come to life with great detail and realism. You will be amazed! Perfect for both the novice colorist and the experienced colorist! (meer…)

Color and Relax : Peaceful patterns

Dit is de Engelse review. Lees je liever de Nederlandse review. Klik dan hier.

sam_0277

From Color and Relax we received the book Color and Relax Peacefull patterns for writing a review about.

This book is the first colouring book by Jo Shiloh. He published the book Color and Relax Tranquil treasures earlier, which we reviewed some time ago. In this book you will find all kinds of patterns, from easy to more difficult ones. The designs are printed one-sided, which I always find a plus. The cover of the book reveales what the book is about. It shows a pattern in which the repeated pattern is always coloured in the same way.The paper feels thin, but I will test how it colours of course. But first I will show you some examples from the book, to give you an idea of what you can expect.

I started with colouring pencils and chose the Stabilo Original pencils. The pencils coloured a little stiff but did release enough pigment. The pigment was absorbed well by the paper and the colours are displayed well. I didn’t adapt it, because I think the colours covered the paper well enough.

Next I coloured with felt-tips and chose the Zig Clean color real brush pens. The ink dried well and remained in place. The colours are displayed nicely too. Because the paper is rather thin, the ink presses through. So just to be on the safe side I put a white sheet of paper between the pages to prevent the ink from damaging the design on the next page.

sam_0285

Since the pages are printed one-sided, I wanted to test what alcohol markers would do on this paper. I chose the Winsor & Newton Brushmarkers. These markers coloured very nice on this paper. The colours dried up nice and even and I had no problem with bleeding. So this paper is suited for using markers too. Do put a clean piece of paper or cardboard between the pages however, because alcohol markers always press through. And with this thin paper that happens for sure.

sam_0284

Conclusion: This book contains simple and more difficult patterns. The paper feels thin, but is suited for all sorts of materials. Pencils, felt-tips and even alcohol markers all work well on this paper. Pencils were a little stiff, but the result was good. The book is printed one-sided, which I always think is an advantage.
