Open Flourish | General Discussion / Ink everywhere!
« on: May 09, 2014, 12:58:48 PM »
I have a big problem, I don't know if it's just me and my silliness or what, but lots of time I spoil my work by spotting on it, I usually get my hands dirty and as I start writing my hands touch the paper and voilą, SPOTS OF INK EVERYWHERE!
Can anyone help me? Any advices?

Oh Erica, thank you!

That's interesting, why did you quit the Professor's Assistant job? I don't like very much the logic field of philosophy, my favourite is Political Philosophy.

As soon as my work will seem decent I will share something: I need advices and criticize!

Thanks for replies and advices! Yesterday I found in a shop near the school of fine arts here in Milan some nibs, but most of them do not have any name written on, so i don't know exacly which kind of nibs they are. Maybe I will take a photo of them in order to show you!
I also bought a elbow nib by Mitchell since I don't have an oblique holder.

Thank you garyn!
I had a look at that, i absolutely want to buy other nibs, but I don't know where. Because of the shipping cost I would pay a lot ordering on the websites you linked. I'm going to search here in Milan, if i don't find anything i'll make a order.

oh, thank you! your reply was really illuminating for me.
I could only find this nib here where i live, so i started with it, but i find it very difficult, without considering that i have to recharge ink so often!

Yesterday I discovered that my nib - yes, i have just one for the moment - is a Leonard 801. When I bought my nib-holder I didn't even know nibs do have names and i thought it was a Classic, standard one. But now I know it is a leonard 801 nib, I found on the net that it is a mapping nib, what does it mean? And, overall, is this nib adapt for calligraphy? Has everyone tried it?

Hi, my name is Alice, I'm 21 and I'm from Milan, in Italy.
I study philosophy at university, indeed I should be studying now insteed of watching Erica's videos :P
Well, I have never studied calligraphy before, but a week ago I decided to learn something about so i bought a nib holder and a kind of basic pointed nib. At first I was desperated as I couldn't find any tutorial on the web, then I found this forum and I started jumping all around my room because of happiness! Thanks to Erica's Tutorial I'm learning Copperplate and I'm moving my very first steps in calligraphy!
I'm sorry for my bad bad bad english! :(
