Zentangle on wood!

Let your creativity flow using a woodburner and Zentangle designs. Woodburning is easy (just like using a pen) and allows great opportunities for shading. Darker lines and subtle shading are created by altering the amount of time the burner touches the wood surface. The samples shown above show how easy it is to use regular Zentangle designs on both paper and wood (plywood shapes look great Zentangled). Walnut Hollow's Creative Woodburner is a great tool to use and you can find inspiration for Zentangle designs in Stockade's selection of books.
