Stixnstonez is a really easy tangle I designed to create a grid appearance. It can be left alone, or you can use the grid to tangle the inside of it—it’s up to you. But we’ll get to that later.
Stixnstonez with Color
The color examples I’ve created here for Stixnstonez are not super different, and I’ve done that deliberately. I’ve used different colors in each example as well as variations on how you can make Stixnstonez work for you. I’ve also used the example here to show how you can incorporate other tangles into Stixnstonez. The tangle itself is in watercolor, the inner tangles in Micron pen.
Stixnstonez in a Shape
The vintage TV shape is hand drawn. Stixnstonez is used on the screen; I simply turned the tangle to a diagonal angle. I also used the Stixnstonez basic concept for the dials on the TV.
Use these shapes to practice Stixnstonez and really challenge yourself to use it in a more complex way. You might find the results are better than you expect.
