This kit is the "best bang for your buck"! It contains everything you need for the Zentangle process (and more!). Here is a list of what you will find in your Zentangle Kit:
We call our small sheets of paper, tiles. Zentangle tiles use a mould-made, acid-free, 100% cotton, heavy-weight fine artists' archival print-making paper with a beautiful vellum surface. Each tile is die-cut in resonance with this fine paper's original deckle edges and enhances the appearance of your mosaics. Sized at 3-1/2 inches (89 mm) square, these tiles are designed to fit in pockets or in old floppy disk containers.
We chose Sakura® Pigma Micron 01 black pens to draw Zentangle patterns on our tiles. This archival pen uses pigments instead of dyes to create its 0.25 mm width line. When permanence is required of a pen, whether for marking ballots to last for hundreds of years, or by top cartoonists, Sakura Pigma is their choice.
A soft pencil is ideal for drawing strings and for shading your tile. We supply two soft-leaded embossed pencils with your Zentangle Kit. To sharpen your pencil, we include a German Kum® brand pencil sharpener.
This tortillion, or smudge stick, is a small rolled paper tool to get into those fine corners which are too small to smudge with your finger tip. With precision and ease, it ever so gracefully allows you to manipulate your shades of gray.
Watch our instructional DVD and read our small instructional booklet and you'll be ready to create beautiful art inspired by the Zentangle method. Our DVD (we now include a full size DVD suitable for all computers and players) no spoken words and just a few written words. Yet, after watching it, you will understand how our Zentangle method works enough to begin
Your kit includes a tile-sized card we call a Zentangle Legend™. It includes a Zentangle-sized card with 20 numbered and named Tangles and instructions on the back. It is a companion to a twenty-sided die (icosahedron). If ever you're ever stumped with what pattern to do next, or if you want to do a new pattern, just roll your icosahedron and do whatever pattern corresponds.
Use your Legend as a quick visual reminder of tangles. Its instructions suggest ways to use it to stimulate and expand your creativity.
All of this (and more) comes in an easy to carry and easy to store container. Shaped like a book, it measures 5 1/2 " x 8 " x 1 3/4 " (14 cm x 20.5 cm x 4.5 cm).
