DuoTangle Flux and NZeppel

This was a fun challenge. I like both of these tangles. Flux is always fun, and N'zeppel is my mac n cheese pattern. I use it in most of my pieces.

And, the challenge came along as I was revving up an interest in gemstones.

So, this is my entry.

My new gray tone sketchbook...mmmm!


The shiny turquoise flux was first. It was so enjoyable, as I was doing it at work, so I'd come and go, and whenever I came back to my desk, I got to see the shiny all over again. The other flux I was trying to get a matte silver patina, not sure how successful that was, but then I comforted myself with shading the Nzeppel...of my most favorite things to do in the world. I used Prismacolor pencils, graphite, and white gelly roller
And the round of nzeppel up in the corner made me think of something...so I did this one:

I haven't done a single smidgen of shading on this one yet, but I thought it was a good choice for the two patterns. It is on a regular tile that I made myself from tiepolo paper.

Lots of fun...and still playing with gem effects.
