Gillott No.5005
« on: May 09, 2023, 09:08:25 PM »
@AnasaziWrites made a handsome gift of a vintage set of Gillott "Pens for Ornamental Writing" - Broad edge pens in eleven widths, not quite as flexy as Mitchells, but sharper, and with a bit of an oblique cut. I promised I'd post something that I made with them.

The ink is Pilot's Iroshizuku fuyu-gaki with Diamine's Gold Star (from Invent 2019) to provide the hit of gold shimmer.
The paper is a linen finish Strathmore 400 series for acrylic painting.
The text comes from The Song of Solomon, Chapter 6, KJV 1611

Mike - I'll pop this in the mail for you in the next week or so. I hope it will make a nice present for your wife.
