Practise drawing your design on paper first. Lightly draw the pattern onto your pebble using a pencil .
To activate a new gloss paint marker: Shake the marker well with the cap on. Place the writing nib of the marker on a piece of test paper, pump a few times by pressing down on the nib carefully until the ink appears in the nib. Check the marker by drawing a few test lines first. Always replace the cap after use.
To draw the "Jonglebee" Zentangle® pattern, start with the outer circles. Now fill them in gradually with a series of curves. Finally, colour in the patterns however you want using the gloss paint markers.
If you want to use layers of colour, let the first colour dry before applying the next.
Words and letters can look really decorative; this idea is to place painted pebbles in a row, each with an individual letter, to form a word.
With the gloss paint markers you can also paint stones very brightly. Here you can see a few examples of how colourful you can design stones and thus currently set a sign of hope. If you like, you can put your stone into a stone snake, which is currently emerging everywhere in the city and in the countryside.
