Escapist Coloring Club – April


Escapist Coloring Club – April

The Escapist Coloring Club Prompt – April 1, 2019


Just an update on the ceramic mug I’ve been slowly painting. I added a little more coloring to the design. This time I did try a smaller bristled brush, hoping I could stay in the lines better. It may have worked a tiny bit better, but not that much easier. I’ll continue to work on it off and on.



Now, these are really fun to do. They look like stained glass. The pages are a kind of see-through paper, and I used markers on them. I’ve put a white sheet of paper behind these so you can see them better. If the pages are torn out and put up on a window, I’m sure the light shining through would be really cool looking.

I finished this whole book of pages quite awhile ago, and tried finding another book. I couldn’t find one at the stores, but did find one at a yard sale. I haven’t started doing that one yet.



Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️

    • Thanks, Janet! I know it is slow going with painting my mug. Eventually I’ll get it done, so maybe you will with yours, too.
      The stained glass pages are fun, and a bit different from the regular coloring pages, so I was happy doing them. 🙂

    • Thanks, Diana!
      I’d never tried a ceramic mug to paint before, but my daughter gave it to me for my birthday…way back in November! I figured it was time to actually start on it!. There are so many of those coloring books these days, and they are fun and relaxing to do. 🙂

      • That’s a great idea! Seems like you can find them lots of places. Some prefer to use markers, and some use colored pencils, or other ways of coloring in the designs. Whichever you choose, or even a combination, it’s all for fun. 🙂

    • Thanks, Holly!
      The mug I’ve had since November! My daughter gave it to me for my birthday, so I’m just now getting around to painting it. It’s fun, but so tedious…and taking a long time…but I’ll finish it one of these days. Glad you liked these. 🙂

  1. Wow! That mug looks awesome! I certainly don’t see any out of the liners! The smaller bristle must work! I think it would make me nervous to do a mug. But if like you say, you pick it up a little at a time, I think the results will be fantastic! Can’t wait to see the finished product!

    I have a stain glass coloring book for after my dragons are done. I haven’t been happy using crayons. My pencils seem too light. I need to find felt-tip pens I think for this. I love how you worked yours!

    • Thank you so much! Glad you like these. I need to do some more painting on the mug…someday it will be finished, then I get to bake it and can use it for my coffee!
      The stained glass coloring books are really fun, and make nice looking pictures. I think markers would be best for these kind.
      For my regular paper pages, I’ve used markers and colored pencils. I like the brighter colors, too, and most times the pencils just don’t show up all that well. 🙂

      • I hate to admit that my reason for crayons is I love the smell! So I want them to work better. But it is hard to get a sharp point. I’m glad we have this project to share ideas of what works and doesn’t while having fun! Thanks for sharing and commenting. Can’t wait to see finished mug!

      • Oh, I know…I love the smell of crayons, too! I have a big box of them that I use on some regular kid’s coloring books sometimes. And then the Color Your World challenge I did a few times, I used them, too. And they are dark enough to show up good. But those designs in the adult type coloring books are so tiny! You’d need a sharp point to get those done. 🙂 It is fun to see everyone’s coloring projects, isn’t it! 🙂
