Hi and welcome back to the Chrissie Murphy Designs Blog. This week’s Magnified Fragment is D1. So without further ado, let’s get into it and have a look at the enhancer we’ll be using. I’ve also included some links to resources you might find helpful for this week.
This Week’s Magnified Fragment is D1
Here’s a quick sketch of what the fragment looks like as a reference for you.
This week’s Magnified Fragment Enhancer is to use Coffering
This week’s Magnified Fragment Enhancer is to use Coffering. Maria Thomas introduced us to Coffering in Project Pack 7, Day 12.
On the Zentangle Mosaic app, Maria describes Coffering a little more:
“I use this technique often, when a tangle needs a bit more detail. … ‘coffer’ (noun). Also called caisson, lacunar. In architecture, one of a number of sunken panels, usually square or octagonal in a vault, ceiling or soffit. You can google ‘coffered ceilings’ to get an idea what they look like. … I like to coffer (verb?) Hollibaugh. All you do is aura inside the shapes between the random boards in your tangle, then connect the corners, shape to shape. … Just make sure there’s enough room to fit the inner aura.“Maria Thomas, Zentangle HQ
I’ve never used Coffering as an Enhancer before, so this will be a great opportunity to try it.
Some resources to help you with this week’s Magnified Fragment
Here is the link to Maria Thomas’s Project Pack 7, Day 12 video that I mentioned above.
Eni Oken offers a Shading Coffering Lesson. Eni is a gifted teacher, so I’m sure her lesson will be insightful.
If you have any ideas for an enhancer, leave me a comment and we’ll feature them in upcoming fragments.
