When I purchased You're a Fungi from Hero Arts, I didn't anticipate problems. It's a cute set--unusual for me--but the images are simple, easy to color, and not too large, which usually works for me.
I ruined a LOT of paper with this set. Not sure what happened, other than I'm nowhere near as good at coloring as I thought I was (but there's no real surprise there, I guess). The set itself is adorable, but after disappointing results with Copics, watercolor pencils, colored pencils, and simple markers, I was ready to give the set to Salvation Army and move on with my life.
Then, the Kaleidacolor ink pads whispered, "Try us!"
So I did.
This time, it was a happy surprise. Playing around with the spectrum pad yielded some rich, bright colors and turned an ordinary scene into something playful and cute.
Note the complete absence of coloring. *sigh*
Still not sure about this set. It's sitting on my desk, awaiting a second wave of effort, but if that proves as frustrating as the first, I'll give the set away.
Life's too short to argue with photopolymer.
Mercy, grace, peace, and love,
