|First, I drew the string with a white Prismacolor Verithin pencil. I like these for strings because the lead is much harder than a regular Prismacolor, so you can get a fine, light line.|
|Done tangling. I used a Sakura white Gelly Roll pen for the AuraKnots and my Faber-Castell metallic colored EcoPencils for the Bunzo. I was thinking 4th of July, so I used red and blue stripes to go with the stars.|
|"Shading" the AuraKnots with my silver metallic pencil. I tried going around the inside of the bunzo to clean up the edges and add a subtle shadow, but it's almost impossible to see. Bummer. It's still kind of plain. What to do?|
Since adding a new tangle is "verboten," I thought about using a tanglenhancer, in this case, perfs. I used the silver pencil again. It's getting there...
|It needs more more color, but I dropped my blue on the floor. The lead broke and I didn't have a pencil sharpener with me. So, no more patriotic colors. The stars are purple.|
