The Zentangle Art Class – Making your Tile POP with Shading – Video 6

by Mahe Zehra

Welcome to video 6 of The Zentangle Art Class. In this video we’ll go over different enhancements and variations that can be added to the tangles you’ve learnt.

In this video we’ll go over one of the most important aspects of Zentangle art. We’ll go over shading, which is the sixth step in the 8 steps of the Zentangle method. Adding shades of gray will make your tiles POP and your tangles will come alive and give a more detailed and 3D look.

First we’ll shade some tangles that we have learnt so far and then we’ll add two more tangles to our tool kit. NZeppel and Striping. Both these tangles are fun to shade as well!

At the end of this class you’ll have 8 tangles in your tangle toolkit!

Using this toolkit you’ll get to create a tile/tiles of your own at the end of the class. Please do take the time and practice what you learn in each video lesson. The more you practice the more enjoyment you’ll get out of this course and the more finished tiles you’ll have to play with in Module No. 4 when we go over different projects that can be completed using your finished tiles.

With this lesson I am sharing the two tangle cards that show the step-outs for the tangles covered in this video class.
