Tangling on Stones

Dear Tanglers,

this weekend we had a lovely little Zentangle meet-up here in Hamburg (again thanks to my lovely colleague and namesake Anya Ipsen). During this event we learned – among many other things – how to tangle on stones.

Aren’t they beautiful? I especially love the colors!

So, how is this done? It’s not that difficult. All you will need is:

  • Zentagle Steine 3a smooth stone
  • an Edding 1800
  • spray varnish
  • Polychromos or Prismacolor pencils for the colors


I shaded my stone (the long one) with a dark grey Polychromos pencil. It works wonderfully well! And you can also even add highlights with a white pencil.

When you’re done, fix your drawing with the spray.

You can use different markers, but be sure to test your marker-varnish-combination, as some markers may run.

I hope you’ll give this a try! Have fun!
