How to draw FLUXOGEE

Zentangle pattern: Fluxogee. Image © Linda Farmer and TanglePatterns.com. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. You may use this image for your personal non-commercial reference only. The unauthorized pinning, reproduction or distribution of this copyrighted work is illegal.Fluxogee is a lovely new tangle from Swiss CZT Hanny Waldburger, composed of a combination of an ogee grid and the Zentangle®-original Flux tangle. Thus the name Fluxogee.

As Hanny points out, it is a tangleation where the ogee shape is used as the reticula (grid) and the Flux tangle fragment is placed in each of the ogee spaces. The terms reticula and fragment are introduced in the new Zentangle PRIMER Vol 1 along with many examples to combine and experiment with.

Quite some time ago I was practicing a tangle to add to the site and was frustrated because I was struggling with the curving lines of the underlying structure that many can handle quite easily freehand. But not I. Eventually I stumbled on a method of drawing the ogee shaped grid and I included it in a tutorial I called How to draw three types of grids for your Zentangles. Hanny references this tutorial in her post.

Hanny illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Fluxogee here on her blog.

As you enjoy any of the tangles on the site, please do leave a comment of thanks and encouragement to show the artists you appreciate them for sharing their creativity to inspire yours.

    Hanny, I really like what you did with Flux and Ogee. I just got my copy of Zentangle Primer Vol 1 and have been working my way through it. What fun. I love this tangle. I’m also one that doesn’t care to work with grids, but I can see how much more can be done with them. Thank you so much for sharing this with us.

    And Linda, I’ll be checking out that tutorial too. Somehow that one has gotten past me. Thank you so much for all you do!

    I found a way to make this Easy, or easier for me.
    Why not just start off with the base for “leaves” and then play some mooka into it ?
    Just a thought….

  • Hello, Hanny, thanks for your wonderful tangle. Love it, as I love curved lines, and flux. This looks like it is quite versatile. I’m sure I’ll play around with this one during the weekend. I only know one other pattern on the ogee shaped grid, and that is leaves, and I enjoyed doing it. Thanks again.

    • Sorry to answer to myself, but I got the name of the other ogee shaped pattern wrong, and it is not leaves, but Leaflet (to be seen on tanglepatterns.com). There might be more (I’m almost sure there are), but I haven’t used them yet.

      Hi Chris, if you look in the Left sidebar you’ll find the heading TANGLES BY TYPE and when you click on the arrow you’ll see “ogee grid” listed there. When you click on it, it will take you to a page with most of the tangles on the site that are created using an ogee grid. I say “most” because I do miss tags occasionally so if you find any others on the site, just leave a comment to let me know.

      • Linda Farmer, CZT

        And further to my comment about TANGLES BY TYPE, I’ve recently added the Op Art category at the suggestion of tangler Rosemary Turpin. Thanks for the excellent idea, Rosemary!

  • Rosemary Turpin

    I wonder why it is that whenever I (and, I see, other people) try to draw ogees, they start out round and shapely and gradually degenerate into points! Is it just impatience or something else?

  • Rosemary Turpin

    But I just looked at your tutorial on how to draw various grids and I see an easier method there, which I will try – it is very like Cadent, only not so curvaceous!
