Tools and Environment for Zendoodle

347111_SUPER__000_20150710Each Zentangle is a work of art and a ceremony, and should thus be respected by using the highest quality of art supplies as possible. The paper that you choose to create your Zentangle upon shouldn’t just be standard flimsy paper. Invest in fine printmaking paper. The paper you choose should be plain white. Paper that has been handmade or is textured is okay to use as long as it is free from any lines or patterns.
Pick a black ink pen with a fine tip. Do not use a roller ball pen or pencil. Your Zentangle design will not stand out the way that it should if it is completed using anything but. A good pen recommendation is Pigma Micron 01 black pen.
You will also need a soft leaded embossed pencil for drawing your initial strings and a pencil sharpener to keep the tip sharp and fine.
The best environment for tangling is one that is peaceful and tranquil. You want your workspace to be free from any distractions. That means turning off the television and finding a comfortable place where you can sit and create your Zentangle. Consider listening to some gentle music while you draw.
