Word of the Day!


A bright yellow or golden alloy of copper and zinc, in the proportion of about two parts of copper to one part zinc. The zinc makes brass stronger and harder than copper is alone. It is malleable and ductile, though variations in its composition make its properties variable. Also, incised plaques or tablets made of brass, many of which were made as memorials to the dead during the Middle Ages and Renaissance in Europe. Many of these have become so popular among people desiring to make rubbings of them that casts of the originals have been made to use this way in order to preserve the originals.

A very pale blue that is invisible to a camera or photo­copier. A non-photo pen or pencil may be used to make notes on an original: paper may be printed with a non-photo blue grid to allow for easy line-up. In either case, as copiers become more sensitive, you should advise your customer to test these products first.

Excellent quality materials. I got this as a gift from my sister. I suffer from anxiety and am using it as a way to calm and refocus my thoughts. The set includes drawing tools and paper tiles only. It does not come with instructions, but there are a ton of online Zentangle videos, resources, and daily drawing challenges that I am able to utilize. I wish it had more than 5 tiles, but she purchased other paper tiles on your site to include as part of her gift.
