Months and months ago, one of the lovely ladies on one of my Facebook zentangle groups posted a picture of a piece they’d done on tin foil. It looked fabulous! I didn’t save her image, but here are a couple I found on Google and Pinterest.
I had it down on my to do list to get round to trying at some point, and this week I finally did it.
Step 1: cut tin foil and smooth as much as possible.
Step 2: draw a quick test squiggle.
Step 3: flip over and see how it looks.
Step 4: doodle away!
Step 5: flip over and admire your work.
Step 6: sign and put the date.
Step 7: flip over and realise you forgot to put date in mirror writing.
Step 8: cut off failed date and use to write date properly.
Step 9: make note to do more at some point soon 🙂
Some thoughts though… make sure you don’t use something too sharp for drawing, as you’ll pierce the tin foil. I used food wrap, but it looks like people online have been using foil trays as well as cleaned out drinks cans. Lots to experiment with.
