Zendoodle patterns – now even on porcelain!

Painting porcelain for relaxation

Everyone’s talking about Zentangle® lately; a form of artistic meditation from the USA that brings meditative relaxation and emotional balance to everyday life. Build the patterns by starting off with just a few strokes and connect blocks of pattern together until little by little you have produced a small work of art. We extracted designs from a Zendoodle piece drawn using a black fineliner and tried them out on porcelain using the edding porcelain brushpen. Needless to say, we were very impressed with the results! The delicate lines and patterns look beautiful on bowls, plates or mugs.

Depending on you colour preference, there are different porcelain brushpen sets to choose from: warm shades of red, cool blues and greens or mixed colours. The pens are ready to use straight away and work best on light-coloured porcelain.
