Ken, are you a master penman yet?  Because I swear after oggling and drooling after all your exemplars I am FLOORED...they are amazing...I'm out of words to describe my awe after this...

@List 1

I am so sorry I am running late to send out my envelopes will go out either on Monday or Tuesday before the end of the next week because I have been having a hard time finding paper now that I'm visiting my family...hahaha!!  :P :P :P  But I promise they will be sent out before the end of the month!!

@melanie jane : That would be something to see...I'd like that...some home tests to see how the different resins stand up to different things...of course in the shape of the pen...;)

That's so thoughtful! Thankyou for reaching out.
I cannot have anything that has pork or alcohol in it. Other than that, all good. 👍
What about you?


No food restrictions for me...I just like to eat! Hahaha!

@june.witch @Laylarosewhite @Afreen Gaffar @Denise P @Laurynhines @Katie_L

Hi everyone please let me know if you have any food restrictions and I'll take note before writing out your recipes and sending them out...:)

@darrin1200 : I honestly loved the copper in the was absolutely gorgeous...that's why I'd be disappointed if it was a polyester resin...because I want it...hahahaha!!  ;D ;D ;D

@darrin1200 : My thing is, I want something that's going to stand up to my lifestyle.  Learning that polyester resin is more fragile and knowing how things get thrown at me, I like to anticipate my needs by buying things that are going to stand up to what gets thrown at me.  Now I'm not saying I want an indestructible pen, but rather I'd like to know that per se it falls off my desk onto tile (due to one earthquake or another) I'd like to find out it's still useable, not completely shattered.  That said I've seen some really nice pieces of resin and now I know why they break.

@melanie jane : I am totally happy to pay your prices (when I can afford them) because of not only the work you put into it but how much consideration you put into your products.  Also I haven't written him off yet...but it has been a few days...and if they're not they're really pretty, I'd definitely consider getting at least one...:)

It's Tom's studio, I found him on instagram...and that's all he said when I asked for clarification "Is it a polyester, acrylic, or polyurethane resin?"...He never replied again.  So maybe it might be polyester resin...*sigh* they were soo pretty too... :'(

@melanie jane can I ask your take on something called clear water resin...There's an artist in the UK who works with it and when I asked what kind of resin that was the answer I got...I'm not sure what it means online I found it meant polyester resin but it didn't say Clea water resin...So I'm lost...

I love the Brause 66EF boyfriend bought me a box of 50 for Christmas, but if you're interested, there's this seller on instagram called "NibShoppe" and they sell vintage nibs at half off...I bought a few to try and half off is like $1.25 converted.  You should definitely try them.  And the reason they're on sale is they're a little rusty...but you can always rub that off with a bit of elbow grease and some oil. If you DM me I have an interesting nib you could try...Leonardt General, usually for larger pieces but I figure why the hell not just try it? :)

You could use walnut ink as a wash for a background to make the paper look more antique.  Especially if you're using traditional parchment paper (not that paper everyone's using for certificates and whatever) but rather the old school parchment paper.

I've never tried speedball calligraphy ink or liquitex professional ink...I'd like to hear feedback from anyone who's tried these...They're on sale and with a student budget I don't want to buy them without knowing they're going to be worth buying...

I just signed up, and I'll be in the States during the time of this exchange so I'm excited, I'll have a complete address to try cooking these!! I can't wait!!  I hope no one has any food allergies or things they can't eat in my list...please PM me if you do have dietary limitations and I'll send you a recipe that can still fit!

@Empty_of_Clouds: I'm so happy to hear that you've gotten yours!  I was a bit worried, but I'm glad to hear mine made it out to you...

I'm still missing one from @katerina but I think my mail is just slow...thank you so far to everyone! The surprises have been wonderful and fun!! :)
