The Bloom Watercolor Coloring Pad

 

The Bloom Watercolor Coloring Pad is a specialty pad designed by Valerie Chua in partnership with International Fine Paper Exchange (IFEX), the Philippines' official distributor of some of the best watercolor materials in the country: Winsor and Newton, Canson and Arches. The pad is a small tribute to Valerie's illustration work and features 10 unique drawings on 300gsm Canson Cold Press paper - perfect for beginners and intermediate artists who want to paint with watercolor straight on without worrying about buckling or producing a drawing beforehand. This pad is available in book and stationery stores in the Philippines for P499.75 and internationally for $10.50.

This pad contains 10 sheets of original line art made to mimic my actual pencil sketches before I begin watercoloring.

Inside the cover sleeve is a 4-page tutorial on basic color theory, wash application, and a step-by-step process using 2 of the drawings in the pad as an example. Colors and medium were patterned from Winsor and Newton Cotman and Winsor and Newton Watercolor Markers — but feel free to use whatever medium you're comfortable with.

Each sheet is made of 300gsm cold press Canson Montval, 100% pulp - ideal for casual and relaxed watercoloring. It can withstand lots of water. Mistakes can easily be lifted while still wet.

You can use the following mediums on Canson Montval: Watercolor, ink, gouache, acrylic, acrylgouache, markers, pens, pencils, and other water-soluble paints.

All pages are peelable. Feel free to frame them, stick them on your wall or give them to a friend or loved one.
