Editorial Reviews

Review

Time to Tangle with Colors pushes Zentangle into the dimension of color with 48 tangles and borders. More than simply coloring a tangle design, this book offers lessons which enable even the novice artist to use Tombow Dual Brush Markers to color delightful tangled images - this alone is worth the price. --d-originals.com

From the Back Cover

Zentangle is a relaxing and rewarding process that allows all ages to create artistic designs with repetitive patterns (tangles). Enjoy the experience that tangling brings. Drawing simple tangles can be done anywhere and no 'artistic' talent is needed. The process helps anyone get in touch with life, solve problems, turn mistakes into positives, be innovative and become more creative. Add touches of color for brilliance and inspiration.

I am new to the art of tangling. Having taken one workshop, I was bitten by the tangle bug. I immediately ordered 2 books and although they described the technique of tangle, I felt that they were creatively lacking. Then I ordered this book. WOW. What a difference. This book is packed with ideas and techniques that inspire. The book started out with color theory, which I thought would be over my head, but was explained very well. I don't consider myself an artist, but almost everything on every page of this book felt do-able.

For the beginner like myself, this book includes 48 tangle patterns and borders. What I like about this book is that each step of a pattern is clearly illustrated. As you draw a pattern each new step is illustrated in red, so that you only concentrate on the next line. You don't have to decipher the instructions, as it is very clear what the next step is. This was a really big deal to me. One of the books I had purchased earlier was entirely black and white, and I felt the patterns were harder to figure out. So even if you might think this color thing is too advanced for a beginner, the author does a really good job of explaining patterns to a beginner.

The one critique I would make is that the patterns and borders don't start until halfway through the book on page 26. A beginner like myself might get overwhelmed with the all the colored snazzy stuff you see before ever getting to how to make a pattern. I was not overwhelmed. I was inspired. However, my friend ohhed and ahhed and then curled up in a ball and whimpered. So if you are brand spanking new to tangles I recommend you do this:

Browse the whole thing. Make sure you have something to wipe the drool off your lower lip. You will drool.

CZT, Marie Browning, has written a book that successfully combines theory and technique. The beginner will revel in this book, and the experienced user will enjoy the artwork, and generous heaping of new tangles. There are 48 tangles in all, though many are border variations of another tangle. The artwork is done with Tombow dual brush pens, colored pencil, gel pen and micron pigma pen.

The book starts out explaining color theory, and then pen and pencil techniques. In the tangle section, the author presents us with a glorious cascade of examples and projects.

Marie Browning has written a new Zentangle book with colors. Using easy to follow steps, the author illustrates 48 tangles and borders. It is not just coloring the tangles! If you have done the black and white tangles then going to colors is not the same thing, it is more than simply coloring a tangle design. YOu need to learn how to use markers, ink and pencils in colors and how the colors look together and interact.

What was missing (or what I was looking for) was how to do with the watercolors. I have tested how to color my tangles with watercolor and the challenge is finding a good watercolor paper. and how to get the black-white tangles show with the watercolor added to the background or with the tangle.

All in all, if you like tangles, then you will love this book, too!!!

I bought this book because I've been seeing others incorporate color into their tangles but was too chicken to try. This book gives great instruction on using color. If you aren't accustomed to playing with colors and want to learn how to choose complimentary colors for your tangles, this book will help you do that, too.

All in all, I enjoyed this book and it nudged me out of the fear of putting color to my tangles. :)

This book is not what I was expecting. It is quite limited with design inspiration, is quite thin and I was honestly disappointed overall. I have found a lot more inspiration on pinterest boards, and would save my money and just search my boards next time...

It took me a while to get this book, but I'm glad I did, because it's the best of the Zentangle books I have and to me it's the most inspiring. I have a lot of ideas based on the work in this book, and I just need a few more supplies to carry them out.

There are lots of illustrations showing different techniques and using different tools. I particularly like the ones done in sepia tones, which the author says are good for beginners.There are ideas for bookmarks, cards, little plaques for friends, picture frames and any kind of picture you want to make. The book has a color wheel and the supplies used are explained well.

I'm very pleased with this book and it was worth the wait.

Whew! When I got this in the mail, I was really surprised at how small and thin it was. At this price point, I expected more. I didn't look at the page numbers/dimensions before purchase (my bad, i guess), but for $13 I expected more than this. I felt a little cheated and rather deflated after that. I've now researched other zentangle books and it looks like they're generally pricey for their size, which is a real turnoff! I've never zentangled and was looking for a good beginners instructional book. On one hand, I really wish this book was bigger, but it does seem to be sufficient for a beginner to get going and the instructions seem clear. But gee whiz why are these books so pricey!? It's hard to feel very zenful when one feels a bit ripped off.
