Review of "Time to Tangle with Colors" by Marie Browning

Time to Tangle with Colors



About the Book


CZT, Marie Browning, has written a book that successfully combines theory and technique.  The beginner will revel in this book, and the experienced user will enjoy the artwork, and generous heaping of new tangles. There are 48 tangles in all, though many are border variations of another tangle. The artwork is done with Tombow dual brush pens, colored pencil, gel pen and micron pigma pen.


The book starts out explaining color theory, and then pen and pencil techniques.  In the tangle section, the author presents us with a glorious cascade of  examples and projects, briefly explaining technique and theory used for each.
