Identi-Pen and Zentangle Inspired Art on Cork Trivet

The Identi-Pens from Sakura work perfectly for creating artwork on many surfaces.

Each Identi-pen marker has two ends. In the video, I use the felt tip end.

What I learned is that pulling the pen toward you rather than away works a lot better. Pushing away, the pen catches and lifts the pebbly cork surface.

After I finished the video, I added more detail to the trivet using the plastic tip end.

The pens are waterproof and will not run or smudge on the trivet.

I have also done this process on cork coasters.

The cork trivets came from Ikea. They are the same on both sides so you have two surfaces to work on.

I think this project would make a wonderful gift.
