The class focus is drawing patterns on gourds
that have shading giving the image depth and interest. The first
half of the class is spent learning to draw, with pencil, three patterns
from the zentangling world on paper. Then we will apply the basic
rules of shading to the drawing.
Next we will draw the same patterns on the our
gourd using the writing tip and the ball tip. This technique adapts
the traditional method usually seen on wood. These are grid patterns,
so no drawing talent is needed! With this technique we do not burn
through the surface of the gourd, but burn layers of “toasted
with the Writing and Ball Tips
