6 Must Have Supplies You Need to Create Doodle Art

Zentangle / Doodle art is all the rage, but what supplies do you really need to turn simple doodles into beautiful works of art?

Here are my 6 must have supplies…

  1. Mechanical Pencils – Because I’m drawing people, faces, and clothing, it’s not easy to get it right the first time, so I always start with a light pencil sketch. I prefer lead sizes 0.5 and 0.3

  2. Black Permanent Pens – I use both Micron and Faber-Castell and have collected all different size tips. If you are just starting out, I’d recommend purchasing .01 and .03 pens.Micron & Faber-Castell Pens
  3. Erasers – Kneaded and white erasers are the only erasers I ever recommend using. Colored erasers can leave marks on your paper.

  4. Paper that can handle pens – Sketch, marker, bristol, and printer paper are all good choices. I typically use Bristol paper.

  5. Ruler/Stencils/Compass – These are just options if you like to have really straight lines or consistent shapes like circles or squares.
