Thanks to our friends from Adult Coloring 101 who provided their unbiased review of our book. Some highlights include:
…I did not find this coloring book preachy in any way and enjoyed coloring in it even though I am not religious.
Our focus with Soul Coats was to increase the audience that could interact with our book. We intentionally made the book beautiful and not preachy in any way.
Other key features:
Nine of the designs are lovely hand-lettered Bible quotes/passages with leaves and vines that intertwine themselves in around the letters. Soul Coats also has nature scenes with flowers, birds, and animals; wallpaper patterns; mandala-style illustrations; and tableaux with Biblical characters.
Some insight on mediums tested:
The paper is a smooth, heavy-weight bright white stock. Much like Johanna Basford’s coloring books, it was a dream to color with all of my media, including artist and student-grade pencils and water and alcohol-based markers. The printing is top quality; I could not find any splotches or gaps in the line work.

The pages are double-sided, and alcohol-based markers will bleed through to the design on the other side. Still, alcohol-based markers don’t feather on this paper…My “juicy” water-based Crayola Supertips and Prismacolor Scholar Brush Tips didn’t shadow and even though the paper is relatively smooth, they barely pooled.
Thanks again for your insight and thoughts.
