Zentangles in Black and White – The Dark Way To Relax

In this area you can have a look at the Zentangles in black & white I’ve done. But first I have to say that the basic motives are not done by me. I normally search the internet for already existing templates which seem to be fun and then I trace the basic shape onto a new paper. For example I then have a paper with an empty head of a giraffe :).

For my Zentangles I normally use light resistant markers because otherwise the lines change from black to grey after some time in the sun. For fixing I’m not using fixative but I’m using hairspray :). That’s the cheap alternative version of the fixative but it’s not that effective.

For these I only used my “Staedtler Permanent Lumocolor”


Zentangle’s I’ve colored from my “zentangle coloring book”‘s

I used “Stabilo Pen 68” for coloring and a black or dark grey pencil for the shadows.
