Copada is an elegant, simple tangle pattern with so many possible ways to embellish it for variation. Margaret shows a few to inspire you.

A little shading along the edges of this tangle gives it a nice curved dimension. Copada makes a great border tangle.

Margaret illustrates the steps for drawing Copada here on her blog.

"Absolutely the best Zentangle Book yet! As an accomplished artist I used to think I did not need instruction on this art form. How wrong I was! My tangling improved by leaps and bounds after reading this book. If you think you have Zentangle down then you need this book more than ever!" ~ Kris H

    Thank you! After The Diva challenge last week featuring Copada, I was kind of surprised that you hadn’t featured it here as yet. I loved when I found it. Month or more ago online. Therefore, I loved doing last week’s challenge. Now here it is so everyone can enjoy it through your gentle guidance to the best tangles out there!

    Thank you!

  • I absolutely ADORE this tangle! I had seen it on Margaret’s blog, but I’m so glad you featured it – it is definitely a KEEPER! 🙂 So versatile, simple, and fun!

    Thanks for always bringing us the best of tangles!
