Zentangle Inspired Art Swap Series Homepage

One of my all-time favourite themes to swap, because it is SO versatile -- Tinting tiles with a splash of colour, spots, or a full wash, creates a unique, one-of-a-kind tangling surface! Try to do it differently from before if this is your second or third round of this themed swap ;)

Please check that you have read ALL the details as the requirements for each swap in the series may vary. Email me if you encounter any problems: hesedetang[at]gmail.com

This is a sender's choice swap, but please avoid religious/controversial themes. This is a type 3, International swap with a minimum rating of 4.99 and above. For interested swappers with less than 4.99, do leave me a private message for consideration.

I will angel if necessary.

The Details:

  • One partner, one ATC

  • Your string should be drawn free-hand, either with pencil or with your choice of tints.

  • About tints: You may use any medium you like, for example, acrylic paint, watercolour, poster colours, pastels, goache, wet or dry watercolour pencil or even upcycled nail polish. Try to do a 'test' piece before you create your 'actual' swap piece, as some of these tints may cause your regular tangling pen to malfunction (scroll down for more).

  • About brushes and technique: You can use different brushes and techniques so the sky is the limit. Check out this cool article that teaches how to morph upcycled everyday items into art tools!

  • About inks: If your go-to tangling pen is pigment based, you will find that oil-free paints and tints work best, with the best results. Alternatively, give your pigment pen a good vacation, and use a gel ink pen instead! These come in fun textures such as opaque, glitter and metallic, or stick to minimalist white/black :)

  • When using tangles in your work, please choose from KNOWN or PUBLISHED TANGLE PATTERNS. [ I hate to have to be so exacting in my requirements, but of late, I have received some very sloppy work in this swap series. If you have any questions about what Zentangle is, PLEASE ASK BEFORE YOU SEND. ]

  • Fill up at least half of the ATC. More is always fine.

  • You may choose to buy or create your own ATC from your favourite art paper, bristol board, strathmore cold press, etc., just ensure your ZIA ATC is thick enough.

  • You may choose to include a sleeve for the ZIA ATC, but it is not a requirement.

  • Include a note containing: A. your SB moniker, B. swap name, C. a few lines to share with your partner, and D. quick list of tangles used in your ZIA ATC.

  • Send your ZIA ATC and note in an envie.

  • Rate your partner when you receive a ZIA ATC with a note that includes A. B. C. & D.
