I was turned on to this product recently and I love them. I have used different forms of coloring and I can't wait to try more. I haven't had the opportunity to complete a project as of yet, however I know the projects I am preparing for will look great. What a way to make my cards and crafts really colorful and unique!
I love these paintables, designed by Lindsay Ostrom , of whom I was able to meet at a craft store in Grass Valley, CA. They make up quickly and are such fun to color. It was nice to see that Scrapbook.com has these 12 x 12 paper sheets available to purchase, as I just had to purchase more.
I was so excited to finally find watercolor coloring books and sheets. However, I was a little disappointed that, while they work fine for watercolor pencils...that is about it. Zig markers, traditional watercolors, and winsor and Newton watercolor markers do not blend....at all! I ended up adding a coat of clear gesso that solved the problem but it was a lot of extra work after having to cut each one out. They are a bit oddly shaped, as well. I would have liked for them to be large enough to use as the center of a greeting card but they are either too large or too small. Otherwise, the designs are darling and great if you just want to use your pencils. And you can't beat the price for a dollar and change.
