How To Do It

  • Supplies: Plain square paper (3-4 inches square), a black fine-tipped marker, a pencil.
  • Use a pencil and make four dots in the corners of the paper and connect them to create a border/frame.
  • Use a pencil to draw a letter ā€˜zā€ or lower case ā€œeā€ to divide up your square into four areas.
  • Choose the first area and use the pen to draw the first pattern (lines, dots, spirals, half circles, squiggly lines, zigzags, etc.).
  • Continue filling out the other three areas using a different pattern for each area.
  • Use the pencil to add shading.
  • Sign your tile.
