New Zentangle® pen sets from Sakura

Zentangle® creators Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas have teamed up with Sakura®, manufacturers of the Micron 01 pens specifically recommended for tangling, to produce three great new Zentangle-branded drawing sets.

Brand new 11-Piece Zentangle Sakura Micron pen setHere’s what you’ll find in each of the new pen sets.

  1. 11 Piece Set (List $21.99) – This set has four different size Microns for you to sample, plus a pencil and five official Zentangle tiles. The ultimate sampler of different size pens in one great package:
    • 5 Pigma™ Micron pens sizes: 01, 01, 03, 05, 08
    • 1 – Zentangle pencil
    • 5 – Official 3.5 x 3.5-inch Zentangle tiles
  2. 9 Piece ATC Set (List $13.99) – This set has 3 different size Microns for you to sample, plus a pencil and Zentangle ATC tiles – all in one great package:
    • 3 Pigma™ Micron pens sizes: 01, 03, 05
    • 1 – Zentangle pencil
    • 5 – Official Zentangle ATC tiles (2.5 x 3.5-inch Artist Trading Card size)
  3. 3 Piece Set (List $9.99) – Great starter set or refill pack for your favorite Zentangle pens:
    • 3 Pigma™ Micron pens sizes: 01, 01, 05

The Micron’s quick drying, non-bleeding ink produces permanent lines for long-lasting beautiful results.

The selection of sizes in the 11-Piece set gives you two of the 01 – the one you will use the most – and an 03, 05, and 08 for larger fill areas or broader lines. The tiles are die cut from museum quality paper and are simply a joy to tangle on.

TIP: The Sakura Micron pens are fine precision tools originally created for drafting. They have handling characteristics you’ll want to know and you can learn more about how to use them for best performance here.

    Hey, y’all! I just received Linda’s official Tangle Guide, and let me tell you that, if you haven’t yet donated to the site or otherwise qualified, it’s SO very much worth it! This is a resource I’ll be using from here on out, and most likely every day. Linda has done a masterful job of putting it together, as well as giving a brief introduction of Zentangle and its creators. So, if, as I mentioned, you haven’t availed yourself of the opportunity to take advantage of it….. Well, what are you waiting for?

  • LOVE, LOVE, Love my set- I can take it to work easily and tangle on my lunch- I have everything I need!

  • Susan Art

    Why are they shown as $21.99 on your site and 28.99 on the Amazon site? Is there a code we need?

    • Linda Farmer

      Hi Susan, $21.99 is the suggested list but vendors set their own prices. The first sets sold out and I suppose this vendor decided to price theirs higher. Sorry but there isn’t a code.

  • Joan Thomas

    Amazon is listing it today for $30.58!!! I’m buying my pens separately at Joannes for $2.63 ea.

  • Stephanie

    This is great, I do love these pens. I remember a discussion not to long ago regarding using these pens on fabric. Does anyone know how they work on fabric? I believe there were pens manufactured specifically for zentangleing on fabric, but I have not been able to locate them.

    Thanks in Advance! I too have the official Tangle Guide! It is well worth the donation, or I received mine for purchasing the Zentangle kit!

  • Bobbi
