On April 27, 2018, I met with 12 students at the Miners Cafe in Laurium to bring them through the fun process of creating a Zenbutton. This technique was originated by CZT Marguerite Samama, using Reticula and Fragments as described by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas in their book, Zentangle® Primer Vol. 1.

Making a Zenbutton is an easy process, and it almost feels like magic when the 3-D effect is created in the final steps.

See below how nicely the students’ buttons turned out!


Thanks to Pam at the Miners Cafe for hosting this fun class.

Below is a blue Zenbutton I made on gray paper. Making these can be addicting!


Thanks for reading and happy tangling!
