Every tangle becomes new again as different techniques and tangleations are yours to discover. Add depth with included white charcoal pencil and tortillion.

Dig deeper into the dimension of both light and shadow by using the graphite pencil for shadows and a white charcoal pencil for highlights.

Zentangle Zendala® - 11 Piece Set
Mandala meets Zentangle in a harmonious union that will positively inspire you to put pen to paper.

Zendala tiles are about 4-5/8” (117mm) diameter. They are die cut with our familiar deckle edge and use the same, 100% cotton, archival paper as our Original white tiles. Also included in the set is the perfect selection of Micron Pigma pens. Pen sizes included are two size 01’s for fine tangle work and one size 08 for more bold strokes or filling in.
