Yesterday, I did an informal mini-class with the kiddos, using both the Apprentice video and the video in the basic kit, and we came up with a nice mosaic (several tiles together--yes, there's a lot of lingo.) Hermione the cat appreciates the use of black and white.
Bud struck out on his own and has been making several tiles everyday. He likes the student-friendly Sakura pigma pen, with the plastic tip--it's a slightly thicker line and an indestructible pen.
I've been doing a tile-a-day myself, experimenting with shading and new tangle patterns (below, in approximate order.)
UPDATE: We started!
