For the base of my zentangle, I roll out a sheet of scrap clayon the #4 setting of my Atlas pasta machine, then trim thesheet to a 3 ½”/8.8cm square. This square is placed on atile so I won’t have to move it when it comes time to put it inthe oven.
I score lines with a needle tool to make the sections of myzentangle. These serve as a general guide, and I may makechanges as I add the patterned sheets.
3. Pattern #1: White Polka Dots on Black Background
I condition approximately 1oz/28.5g of white clayand 2oz/56g . I roll the white clay into a log about½”/13mm in diameter and 1”/2.5cm in length.
