Les ateliers Coloriages Mysteres Coloring Book  Review

As most readers know I adore Disney and when a You Tube subscriber recommended this book to me I couldn’t pass it up.   Not only is it Disney but it is also French so it means that I now have a French coloring book for my worldwide collection.

I am a huge fan of  color by numbers coloring books because for colorists that are not confident with color palettes they relieve the stress of having to think about coloring combinations.    When you are stress free,  you can just color for the sake of it and learn about the different colors and how they work together from the project you are completing.  This lovely Disney coloring book is color by numbers and unlike most color by numbers books the line art is very crisp and easy to see making it suitable for a wide range of colorists.

Cover & Layout

The front cover features partially colored images of Snow White, Bambi and Thumper.   In the background you will see the line art and numbering that denotes this is a color by numbers book.    On the back cover only the line art is showing with a color palette and publisher’s blurb.

The blue spine features white text for the short title of the coloring book and the publisher’s and Disney logo.

Les ateliers Coloriages Mysteres Coloring Book is A4 sized  measuring approximately 28.5 cm x 22 cm (11.5 in x 8.7 in)

Ancillary Pages

A plain text title page commences the book which is blank on reverse.   This is the only place to test out your mediums to see how they react with the paper and your coloring style.
At the end of the book there are 7 pages of colored images from the book so you can see what the completed page looks like.


The line art is printed on both sides of the white, smooth, medium quality paper.    Most coloring books tend to use a light grey for color by numbers books but in this one the line art is black and crisp for both the lines and the numbers.   this means that these lines will show through usually when you complete a picture.

The pages are all numbered so you can cross reference the picture with the colored images at the back of the book.

At the foot of each page the color palette has been provided in a cute set of icons that resemble little apples (no doubt a reference to Snow White on the cover).

Most of the pages require at least 12 colors to complete the picture.

Each illustration also has some pre printing colors on the image   Generally these details are quite small and often feature facial elements like eyes or claws.  Normally,  I am not a fan of pre color printing, but in this book it is quite minor and does not detract from how the overall piece would be colored.

All of the illustrations have a thick border around them to ensure that the illustration is nicely framed and avoids the spine of the book.

Les ateliers Coloriages Mysteres Coloring Book Images and Illustrations

The line art in the coloring book all reflect iconic imagery from well loved fairy tales.      You can color Aladdin,  The Jungle Boy, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, The Little Mermaid, 101 Dalmatians, Beauty and the Beast, Dumbo and Alice in Wonderland among others.

There are different levels of intricacy within the book with some images having a lot of smaller sized spaces than others.

Colorists that suffer a minor visual impairment will be pleased with the bold black lines but may find that some of the tightly packed lines may be overwhelming.    One thing that I have noticed is that a lot of  the spaces denote the same color although they have been broken up into smaller parts.   This means that even if you are not totally accurate with coloring between the lines, chances are you are coloring the right color.

About the author


I'm Lea and I love everything to do with coloring! If it is a coloring book, a poster or even a bookmark that you can color in, I'm all over it. Of course, a girl has to have some pencils, markers, gelly rolls, pastels and what not to make those pictures pretty and I love those as well.

Whilst my coloring style lacks skill, I am enthusiastic and focused on enjoying the moment and having fun.

  • Hi Lea, love your page, just wondering if you could tell me what sort of mediums do you use for the Disney Coloriages Mystères, finding it hard to get all the colours

    • Hi Theresa, thank you! I haven’t colored in this book as yet ….I have too many to choose from lol! When I color books I try and match the color as closely as possible to what I have but if I don’t have the colors I have no qualms about changing the colours to something that suits what I have. As to the choice of mediums …it is entirely up to you! I am a pencil girl so that is my usual go to but often with color by numbers the number shows through depending on how much pigment is in the pencil and how dark the print on the number is. You may find something like Crayola Super Tips which are a nice budget brand marker would be a good choice. Here is a speed coloring video where the colorist has used a black paper mate pen and FC polychromos on the picture I have also seen another video where the colorist used FC Pitt Marker Pens …so hopefully a lot of things to choose from there for you! Happy coloring x
