Love the parallel pens! I have never been brave enough to put the ink in directly without a cartridge though. I will have to add that to my calligraphy bucket list.  ;D
I am jealous of your table. Sounds fabulous!

Broad Edge Pen Calligraphy / Re: Addressing Christmas Envelopes

Love this! What a great portrait. I had a similar lightbox but not nearly as tall. My very first lightbox I fashioned out of a wooden carrying case which had slot in it for palettes. I had a piece of frosted glass cut to size and also used a fluorescent light underneath. It wasn't the most comfortable thing to use but it did the trick and it was portable and could fold up and be put away when not in use.

Beautiful envelopes! Those envelopes will take a long time! What if you used the script for their name and then a simple script for the address?

Hi Eric,
A pleasure to meet you! And wow - your Engrosser’s script is very impressive! Gorgeous! All those years of broad pen have given you a great starting point. I would love to know who your influences are in terms of Engrosser’s and what you use for study. Your form is exquisite. Thank you for sharing with us. I really look forward to seeing more of your beautiful work! Welcome to Flourish!  :)

Spencerian Script / Re: Next ink to try ...

I second Jean’s recommendations. McCaffrey’s Indigo and Norton’s Walnut Ink are my favorites. But McCaffrey’s black is great, too. It does go on a bit lighter with some shade variance and then dries a bit darker. I LOVE the shade variance. It adds a certain depth to the calligraphy. Give either a try!  :-*

Wonderful! And wow - that’s beautiful! I saw your lovely post - no rules broken - just the opposite. I am very grateful of your kind words and the recommendation. Thank you for sharing!  :-*

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!!!!!!!  :-*
