How to draw FACETS

Zentangle pattern: FacetsCZT® Nancy Pinke of Elko, Minnesota, created the Facets tangle pattern which was introduced in the Zentangle® newsletter. “We like facets because it is unique, easy to do, fun to shade and you can use it in many ways. After you establish your unique facet grid, it is created with only one stroke, a straight line, similar to paradox.

The newsletter recommends a couple of drawing tips, “As you familiarize yourself with this tangle, explore doing it in different ways. Try starting with the outside lines and move to the center and then try it from the center to the outside. Remember to rotate your tile whenever that works best for you.” Maria Thomas illustrates the steps for drawing Facets, here.

Facets is a cool optical illusion-type of tangle pattern and here I’ve turned it on its side for another point of view. For some reason, this pattern was more comfortable for me to draw side-to-side like this rather than top to bottom or vice versa.

  • Hello Linda and Nancy, it is only just now while looking for new pattern ideas that I see Nancy’s facets pattern. I have to apologize for I’d not discovered it prior and I am one of the newly innocents to zentangle inspired art who had thought I’d created something new with a design so similar.

    I’d noted and left comments, in Linda’s posts re copyright, and how we should be sure we don’t overstep by creating something new from something old (in a sense). Had I opened up every alpha heading here and looked into each design. I no doubt would have discovered Nancy’s lovely facets when I first found this site.

    So, at this stage I guess I can at least share my variation of Nancy’s design http://dragonfly47.blogspot.com/2011/02/new-pattern-idea-whirlygig-for-your.html

    Yours in zentangling-inspired-art.
