Neon Zentangle Inspired Art

Neon Zentangle Inspired Art


Hi! I’m Leslie from Sakura. Neon is such a hot trend right now and our Gelly Roll Moonlight pens come in a lot of great bright neon colors so I’m going to show you how to create a fun, neon mini canvas project. There’s no need to break out messy paint supplies because these are made entirely with pens and markers. I used small canvases, Permapaque and Pentouch markers, and Gelly Roll Moonlight pens. And look! My artwork even glows under a black light. So first take a small sized canvas since we’ll be using pens to add detail,
you don’t want the canvas to big too big or it’ll take forever to complete this canvas is about four inches by four inches. Next, use Permapaque markers to color the entire
white surface of the canvas Permapaque dries with a matte finish and you get full, even coverage you can choose a bright color for the
background if you want to have a really vibrant neon painting, or a more muted color if you just want a little splash of neon color on your wall. So let your Permapaque dry for a few minutes and in the meantime get out your Pentouch paint markers and your Gelly Roll Moonlight pens. These five colors out of the 10 pack are fluorescent neon and glow under a black light Even if you don’t have a black light
these are still vibrant, neon colors and they look really cool Pentouch paint pens have really bold, opaque color, and are also great for this project. Don’t mix these pens up though. Pentouch won’t glow under a black light. Since I know Zentangle, I used a bunch of Zentangle patterns to decorate my canvases if you haven’t heard of Zentangle it’s an art form where you take simple patterns to create really neat works of art Visit zentangle.com for more info if you have a Certified Zentangle Teacher in your area he or she can teach you the Zentangle method. Choose at least 2 colors you’d like to use on your canvas using a little bit of neon goes a long way so try pairing a white Pentouch pen or a dark Gelly Roll Moonlight color with one of the fluorescent neon Moonlight pens. Or go all out with two fluorescent colors. Fill as much or as little of the canvas as you’d
like. Here, I’m drawing a tangle called, ‘Rain.’ After it dries, you’ve got a neon piece of artwork of your own and if you used any of the five fluorescent Gelly Roll Moonlight colors don’t forget to look at your work of art under
a black light.
