Product Description

Zentangle clamshell set is an easy to learn way to create beautiful images from repetitive patterns. Provides artistic satisfaction and an increased sense of wellbeing. Because of it's size and simplicity of components, zentangle art can be created almost anywhere, alone or in groups without any special abilities or costly equipment. Includes arts and crafts, education and corporate settings, ultimate in quality and design. Materials are elegantly designed, crafted and presented. Applicable as a fun way to relax, focus and gain inspiration. Finished zentangle art is an unplanned abstract. This is an unusual approach to art. Approach has been used to improve confidence and creativity, foster teamwork and even as a type of therapy to address issues such as addictions, attention deficit and stress management. The deliberate strokes and repetitive experience while creating zentangle art make it a useful tool for art therapy. Often art itself is an obstacle in therapy because of preconceived notions of not being an artist. Used to help break down these barriers by simplifying the drawing process to repeated strokes that when combined, result in beautiful art. Also, used in public, private and home school environments to improve creativity and personal expression, problemsolving, hand eye coordination, relaxation and focus. It can also promote crosscultural understanding by analyzing and comparing patterns used in indian henna, celtic knotting, zuni pottery and maori tattoos. Consists of 2 each micron 01, 1 each micron 03, 05, 08 and 1 each pencil with 5 each official tiles measures 31 2inch length by 31 2inch width.

Customer Reviews

These are perfect for doing zentangles or other drawing.
Robin D Orewiler
I would recommend this set to anyone who's interested in starting zentangles because it comes with just what you need to get started, even a few tiles!
Amazon Customer
I've been using these pens for many months now, haven't run out of ink, and the tips are maintaining their shape, none have started to flatten.

Created in partnership between Sakura and Zentangle® creators Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas, this is an excellent starter set of fine pens and tiles for Zentangle newbies or old hands. The Micron's quick drying, non-bleeding ink produces beautiful permanent lines and the selection of sizes gives you two of the 01 - which you will use the most - and an 03, 05, and 08 for larger fill areas or broader lines. The tiles are die cut from museum quality paper and are simply a joy to tangle on. Unlike other art forms requiring lots of supplies, this set is all you need to enjoy the fine art of Zentangle.

You can learn more about Zentangle on their website, and for an online resource of tangles (Zentangle patterns) to learn visit the Tangle Patterns web site.

Very disappointed with this purchase. Loved the idea of sampling different sizes of these pens along with the official Zentangle papers.

The ink in one of the 01's, the 03 and 05 is nearly dry, making very scratchy and unsatisfactory lines. The second 01 & the 08 are ok, (so the whole kit isn't ruined), but I'm not confident that their useful life isn't reduced as well. At first, I thought my paper was at fault but I have found that these pens are horrible regardless of the paper. Unfortunately, I discarded the packaging before sitting down & fully exploring the functionality of each pen--otherwise I'd return them.

I seems to me that this pack has been sitting on a shelf for a long time and I was the unlucky recipient of old or defective merchandise. The pencil is nothing to write home about... It's a branded Zentangle.com pencil - it works fine but hey, it's an eraser-less pencil. (I would've purchased the set without the pencil--I wanted it for the pens & paper sample.)

I gave 1 star because I am happy to have a few (5) squares of the paper to sample, enough to enjoy but enough to see for myself that I have quality options in my home that are just as nice as the official papers. (Yes, the official paper is indeed lovely and someday I might splurge on some more!)

If you found this product because you are new to the world of Zentangle art and are looking for tools, I'd skip this product and order the pens directly. Better yet, if you've got an art shop nearby, stop in and sample a pen--you'll get a feel for how these pens write/draw and you'll know that you are getting a fresh product.

Before you think you need special zentangle pens like these, check the art materials you already have. These are perfectly fine pens, but I don't know that I am doing better, or more, zen tangles because I now have them. There are probably many pens already in my supply closet that are just as fine. I'll be glad to stand corrected.

This us a great set to have if you're new to Zentangles. The different nib sizes in the set work great for anything from very fine lines to bold lines and fill areas. If you aren't sure what sizes you like the most, this set will let you try out different sizes and get a feel how they work with your personal style.

The 5 Zentangle "tiles" that are included in the set are the "official" tiles from [...] They're rather pricy to purchase from their website in larger quantities, so these give you a taste of what they're like before you sink in over $30 (including shipping) for 55 blank tiles. The paper they're made from is a joy to draw on.

Could not even complete all of the 5 cards included, because two of the micron pens ran out of ink. Since I bought these to do Zentangle on ATC cards, I was sorry to have wasted the money. Not a quality item.

This kit is an easy way to get into the Zentangle process. You have special paper cards, the right pens, a pencil (important to the process) and a small instruction folder. Easy to slip into a pocket or purse for those boring times waiting in lines or for appointments. Helps get the artistic creativity flowing like playing scales on the piano.

These are the officially recommended pens, and there are many good reasons. They don't bleed through or feather out, even on the average sketchbook paper I use to practice. They are hearty - I have a very "heavy hand" and tend to ruin markers quickly. These stand up much better than other markers I've used. If you want to tangle, these are the pens to use.
