  1. Hi, Mollosus. I have a question. Have you ever heard of an art tool called a Reducing Tool. It shapes simular to a compass and it has two parts to it and opens and closes like scissors. One side of the pointers you measure a segment of a drawing you want to copy, (but reduce the size) and the other side you mark dots on your paper you're drawing your reduced drawing on and the point measure how large to make the drawing you're copying. It's not just limited to drawings, you can also use this on photographs if you were drawing from a photograph and you want to keep the proportion of the image, but smaller. I saw a tutorial on a u-tube video, but the lady doing the video didn't tell where you can buy this item from.

  2. Cookie, Unfortunately I'm not familiar with a tool like this. I'll ask around, because it sounds really cool. Do you have a link to the video?

  4. There are so many choices, and a lot depends on what you like to do. Stillman & Birn (http://www.stillmanandbirn.com/) (I have a review on their latest coming up on Monday)if you want sketchbooks that can take watercolor and other media, and DayCraft (http://www.daycraft.com.hk/) if you like funky (note that prices listed are Hong Kong dollars, so you might need to convert to find your actual cost), and anything from Rhodia or Quo Vadis (http://europeanpaper.com/) if you like a smoother, thin but high quality paper. If you decide on their product be sure you get one of the blank or possible the dotWebbie.

  5. So, then do you actually have a 'stamp' that you lay down first, that puts in the 'boxes' for you to do your samples in,etc onto the page...that is the part that I covet...I have been patiently pre-drawing the boxes onto pages and pages into a precoiled notebook to do my samples. I know a lot of ppl do cards, but I am old school, and love notebooks.

    1. Ah! You're looking for a book to keep your tangle patterns in, not to draw zentangles. Check Geneviève Crabe's tangle organizers.
