    Are you among those tanglers who always felt a bit uneasy around black tiles? I was one of them, too, so I was happy to have finally found a lovely method that yields awesome results.

    In this class you will learn an interesting approach of adding layers of colors and tangles to a black tile. The combination of the tranzending technique, pastel and color pencils is certainly going to make your tile glow and I'm sure you are going to love it.

    By purchasing the video class, you will get an unlimited access to videos (1h  26m) so you'll be able to tangle at your own pace and convenience and revisit the lesson whenever you want. You will also get a downloadable and printable PDF eBook which contains step by step instructions to finishing both video projects, tips and tricks and step-outs of the tangles used.

    • black round paper tile (Zendala)
    • 0.7 bullet shape black and white Posca pen (a thicker Micron pen, like PN or 05-08 or Pigma 05 and a white Gelly Roll 10 can be used instead)
    • Gelly Roll - gold Metallic and a white, size 10
    • pastel pencils (I use turquoise, violet, yellow, orange, blue)
    • color pencils (various shades of colors listed under pastel pencils and gold/copper pencil)
    • white color pencil
    A note on supplies:
    • PASTEL PENCILS: I'm using Conte a Paris pastel pencils. I've also tried Faber-Castell's Pitt and Caran D'Ache's pencils and they both work fine, but I prefer Conte a Paris for this particular task as they are really soft and vivid. I know that some fellow tanglers are really happy with Koh-I-Noor's Gioconda pastel pencils. I own just a few darker General Pencil's pastel pencils that I got with my Project Packs. Try using whichever pastel pencils you have on black paper and blend them with a paper stump into the background. I experimented with each brand I own and found that they all can look beautiful - see the video below.
    • PAPER: I strongly recommend using original Zentangle's tiles for these projects. The structure of the paper surface is great for pastels. If you would like to do this with another sort of paper, try getting some pastel paper. It is really important that the paper has some tooth - smooth surfaces will not hold enough pigment and colors will not look vivid.
    • PENS: As mentioned in the above list, I really love using Posca pens for this particular task. They work on all surfaces and tangling with them is smooth and quick. You can use Microns, as well, just not the thin nibs as they will get clogged really soon and they don't produce bold enough lines. Poscas are widely available and affordable so getting  0.7 bullet shape black and white pens is the best option.
