Spencerian Script / Re: Spencerian punctuation?
« on: August 06, 2022, 03:51:05 PM »
This is such a good question. I took a quick look at some of my Spencerian resources and did not see anything about punctuation. When I have a minute, I will look at some of my books.   ;D

Bravo! My preference is the 1/10th height. You can see all the beauty and symmetry.  :-*

I would practice on a piece of waste glass (old jar or something that was going into recycling). I think you will have better luck with the oil based Sharpie pen or the acrylic markers rather than a dip pen and bleed proof white. It may work but I donít know the staying power of the Bleedproof white.

Let me ask Schin Loong as I believe she did some white and gold lettering on glass.

I love this on so many different levels. Thank you for sharing!

Aw, that is a shame to hear. While there are a lot of calligraphy books in English, there are few with excellent exemplars. I hope they will reconsider. Your book is beautiful and very well done - it would stand above most.  :-*

I find capital C the most awkward. This one is a beaut!

Introductions / Re: NEW MEMBER, LOS ANGELES AREA

Yes, itís so hard when there are so many styles to try! My grandmother used to call me Jack of All Trades, Master of None. LOL. But itís ok to try new things and find what you are really like. Let us know how we can help you make progress. I find when that happens (I get stuck), it is right before a big breakthrough is going to happen and then I hit a good groove.
I find it best to stick with one hand (like Copperplate OR Spencerian) until I feel comfortable. This prevents confusion (at least for me).
Let us know if we can help. Welcome!

Contemporary and Modern Calligraphy / Under the Maine Pines
« on: July 27, 2022, 04:52:43 PM »
We had a wonderful trip to our beloved Maine recently! We stayed at a VRBO instead of our family's place as there are so many of us now. It was a fabulous house although we were convinced we had a friendly ghost. When I asked the host, China, about it, this is what she replied. I loved it! I didn't have many supplies with me and the Maine air was so humid, calligraphy was difficult. But I left the original for her. This is a photo of the watercolor with procreate calligraphy over it. It certainly did reassure us!
