Zen Origami Coloring Kit: 12 Relaxing Projects to Color and Fold: Includes Origami Book with 12 Mindful Designs, 7 Markers & 60 Zen Patterned Origami Papers
Here is a compactly and attractively packaged, engaging set of origami projects that enthusiasts at all levels can enjoy. Nick Robinson, an award-winning origami teacher, has put together a collection of descriptive origami projects, as well a surplus of excellent quality origami papers along with seven felt tip coloring pens. The black and white designs vary from floral to geometric to abstract patterns, while the coloring exercise will cause these designs to erupt into eye-catching blends. These artful designs can then be folded into origami models such as an angel fish, a twist flower, a kitten, a candle, and others whose patterns and instructions are visually illustrated in the instruction manual. Coloring is a relaxing and contemplative act that allows the user to experiment with using various colors and to make intuitive choices on the selections. As the author states, the concept of Zen comes from the Buddhist school that emphasizes meditation. The folding feature of origami captures the meditative aspect of Zen. This kit provides a very satisfying feast of thoughtful and challenging activities.
