Magical Forest & Ballerina Theatre 3d Colourscapes Coloring Book Review
When I first saw Sandra’s Magical Forest coloring book in my Coloring group, I fell in love! So cute! Interactive pictures that you can color and create a little forest scene all of your own.
As soon as I went to order it, I discovered that they have an interactive 3d coloring book that is based on ballet as well. Of course, as many readers will know, I love ballet orientated coloring books. As I I can create my own stage, it quickly fell in the cart when I spotted it.
At the time of writing, there is another 3d colourscapes coloring book, Undersea Kingdom illustrated by Anna Stiles.
Cover & Layout
Both books shown in the video, feature a colored card cover. Ballerina Theatre features gold foil highlights and Magical Forest features green foil elements.
The 3d coloring books are both like oversized postcard books. They both measure 16.5. cm x 23.5 cm approximately.
On the back cover, you can see how to set up your three-dimensional piece and display it.
The back of each board book has a thick, sturdy piece of card that forms a good resting place for the pictures and helps avoid damage during shipping.
The inside card cover shows how to set up your colored cards in the slots that you have been provided with. There are no additional cards to practice on or test your mediums with.
The illustrations fit the theme associated with the title of the book. The artwork is printed on both sides of the white cardstock. On one side there is text and on the reverse, the same scene is printed sans text.
On each card, you will find an area that has been die cut that when popped from the card forms a window. When colored and lined up in the slotted stand provided, you can see through to see the scenes that you have created.
Some of the illustrations have been duplicated in the coloring books.
You will also find that there are some illustrations that are individual die cuts on the page. It would be easier to color these smaller images on the card before you remove them. Once removed you could stick them to an ice cream stick or pencil to use as characters in your scenes or permanently hang them from fishing line on your scene.
One of the great things about these books is that you do not need to use scissors at all. Everything has already been die cut for you, making it a perfect book to share with a little one in your life. You do need to take care when using the book. As you will see from the video, the binding is very loose and the cards may fall out and be lost.
The artwork in both coloring books consists of sweet and simple drawings. A dull black line has been used which varies from thin to medium weight.
Although the pictures are simple, there are a number of details and elements on each page. This may be challenging for colorists with a minor visual impairment.
Please see the videos for a full view of the artwork.
