DC#305: Duotangle Marasu and Molygon


The task of this week's Diva Challenge is to create a duotangle of the tangles Marasu and Molygon. Both are official Zentangle tangles. I love Marasu much because it has so much depth after shading.

For this tile I tried to connect both tangles a little bit as both of them have a spiral shape . 
Some days before I read a post by Maria Thomas about finishing of the surface with some coating. I used a colourless lacquer in two layers. The result is really stunning, it increases the brightness of the colours and the white charcoal is fixed. Attached you see the tile with the coating and without below.





The recent calendar pages... Goodbye February!

  3. Love the way that you combined these two tangles, it is just beautiful. Amazing what the lacquer did. I haven't tried that yet, but your pictures of the before and after really show the difference.

  6. That is amazing what a finish does for the Renaissance tile. Your tile was beautiful to start with, but WOW!

  7. Your tiles are beautiful. I love the way you laid out the Molygons and embellished them to form yet another pattern. It's almost like you have to look for the Molygons because you're seeing the whole rather than the parts.

  8. The lacquer really gives the tile a shine and a depth. I love this tile and your use of sepia color. :)

  11. I really like how both the Molygon and the Marasu are unwrapping and getting intertwined! And that final treatment is so very rich and warm!

  13. Absolutely fabulous duotangle! I saw it in the Waterfall on Mosaic and thought it was brilliant, but didn't have time to investigate further! Now I'll go back and add it to my "Morphology" mosaic. The laquer is stunning, too!
