Square plastic Tic Tac Toe plastic reusable art stencil for Tangling

As a Certified Zentangle Teacher I often get asked about storage for the ‘step outs’ for Tangles as it’s rather time consuming to draw a grid pattern, page after page, so I designed this ‘Tic Tac Toe’ style plastic stencil for those who use sketchbooks to draw and store their Tangles. My aim was to create a uniform grid pattern stencil that my students can use with either a pen or pencil and without the need for time consuming measuring but making sure each page matches the page before etc, so I decided to make two, this ones fits perfectly over the top of the standard size Zentangle Tiles. There is another listing, the larger ‘Tic Tac Toe’ style stencil that works in the same way but for the Apprentice size official Zentangle Tiles.

There are 4 parts to this stencil, with the overall size of 140x140mm, 14x14cms. The largest of the inner squares that measures 115x115mm, 11.5x11.5cms which fits over the top of an Apprentice size Zentangle Tile. Then there is the next size down square that measures 90x90mm, 99x9cms, which fits over the top of a standard size Zentangle Tile, with x9 smaller squares which have been spaced to form a grid pattern with each small square measuring 25x25mm, 2.5x2.5cms

Over the top of the grid there is a ‘Title line’ that has been cut out so you can use this to include the Tangle name, Designer and or the date, which measures 90mm, 9cms.

This stencil is ideal for use in a sketchbook to create uniform ‘step out’ grids so you can form your Tanlge library or also for use on a Tile. Create a double page spread with your chosen Tangle’s step out on the left hand page and using the medium size square draw a couple of Tiles on the adjacent page and practice using the Tangle.
