Zentangle patterns are the art of black-white art, unplanned, and abstract images that have consistency to form a beautiful pattern. Based on the trademarked Zentangle method, it is usually made on 8.9 cm (3.5-inch) square tiles or drawn using black ink on white paper.
Zentangle is usually made of combinations between flower patterns zentangle, orbs, dots, simple curves, lines, and S-curves. These simple shapes are called “Elementa Strokes” in Zentangle art.
There are few pros and cons at Zentangle art since the discussion about patents has been brought up to the surface. There is a company that owns the trademark of teaching tools, methods, and many aspects of Zentangle, but they don’t own the trademark for the pattern because there are not sufficient differences between any doodling art, Zentangle, and abstract pattern to warrant a patent.
If we see through the art, Doodling and Zentangle are very different. But some people think that Zentangle is similar to doodling because the methods are almost the same. But there are huge differences between them.
First of all, people who do doodling are using their free minds to create art. Doodling art is mostly done out of boredom and mindlessness. There is no need to focus on making patterns although you can find some repetitive patterns on them.
Then, people who do Zentangle have a goal to focus their minds on making patterns for consistency. That’s why there are fixed formats trademarked on Zentangle art.
A lot of people have found their peace after practicing flower patterns zentangle, but there is a question that came up about the difference between Zentangle and mandala art.
Like we have mentioned before, Zentangle is the art of black-white art, unplanned, and abstract images that have consistency to form a beautiful pattern. It has nothing to do with religion but practicing Zentangle makes people feel more relaxed. Mandala Art is about schematic design that connected with tantric Buddhists as an aid to meditation.
When you are practicing Zentangle, there are some recommendations for the best pens you could use. Accordingly Zentangle Inc., they highly recommend using the Japanese fine-liner Sakura Pigma Micron Pen® 01 (0.25 mm) and 05 (0.5 mm). Both of the pens were very pigmented, dry quickly, and had permanent results.
