How to draw POMX2

Zentangle pattern: Pomx2Inspired by the shadow cast from a strip of lace as shown below, Taiwan’s Mei Hua Teng (aka Damy) deconstructed the pretty Pomx2 tangle pattern.

The lace design reminded Damy of Pom-Poms, hence the name of her tangle. Pomx2 is a wee bit similar to Mariët Lustenhouwer’s Ilana tangle.

Pomx2 can be varied in a few ways, one by shortening the length of the strokes to make smaller size alternating “poms”. Damy also shows some variations in her instructions. Shading can add a puffy dimension to the finished tangle.


Damy’s inspiration for Pomx2

Damy illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Pomx2 here and includes a couple of variations.

    Dear Linda
    I’m a bit of a technophobe/dinosaur! Please,
    how do I access these ‘tags’ you keep referring to?
    Many thanks

    • Linda Farmer, CZT

      Hi Joan, no problem! Computer stuff is mumbo-jumbo to a lot of us. Tags are a way of grouping similar items together within a site so you can find all the articles that are related. Kind of like a filing system. Every article on the site has been tagged, for instance each artist has a tag of their name so you can find all their patterns by clicking on their tag. I’ve also tagged patterns “by type”, for instance you can click on the “grid” tag and a page will come up listing all the grid-based tangles. Have a look at the pattern Uni where tags are explained more and showing where to find the tags on each pattern: http://tanglepatterns.com/2014/08/how-to-draw-uni.html
      All tags are listed in the left sidebar of the site under one of two headings: TANGLES BY ARTIST and TANGLES BY TYPE. If you are still confused, let me know and I’ll try to clarify.

  • Sharon Wrench

    Very pretty pattern! Thank you for sharing.

  • Margaret McKerihan

    This pattern is so simple and so pretty! Can’t wait to start using it 🙂

  • Sandye

    I still don’t understand how to find the tangles by type.

    • Claire Gibson

      Look at the grey bar at the bottom of each tangle, just under the section which says, You may also like.
      On that grey bar will be a section called Tags. Those tags usually include the artists name, which you can click on to see other tangles by that artist, AND the type of tangle this is classified as. In the case of POMx2 it is listed as “grid”. If you click on that word Grid, it will show you all the other Grid style tangles. I hope this helps you. If you need further explanation please feel free to let me know and I will do what I can to assist .

  • this reminds me of buttercup. I like it a lot!
