How to draw ZINGER

Zinger is a tangle we’ve seen in Maria’s Zentangles for a very long time however it’s never had a name announced publicly or steps published … until now.

I had such fun playing with this tangle that I feel compelled to share more than one example. Random doesn’t come easily to me, somehow I always have to attempt to give it some kind of order.

My husband pointed out that Zinger looks like Fescu has gone to seed, and indeed the first version Maria shows in her steps is just like Fescu with the decreasing auras Rick describes.

Just as in couples dancing, in tangle tangos, one tangle is more likely to lead and the other follow.” You’ll see this in action in the beautiful Zentangles Maria has drawn demonstrating Zinger.

Although Zinger has been around for quite some time it wasn’t until CZT4 that it acquired its name from CZT® Sue Clark. You can learn the story behind Zinger with Maria’s step-by-step instructions here.

"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
