Gorgeous - both the ink and the calligraphy!  :)

Glad to have you here! Let us know if you have any questions as you go. Your experience with graffiti should translate well to lettering/calligraphy. Welcome!  :)

Tools & Supplies / Re: New/Old Ink/Nib Test

This is such a good point (did you see what I did there?  ;D) I used to have a hard time parting with my used nibs (thought I could do something productive with them). I try to get every last bit out of a nib which is never worth it because you end up with a snag or splat. So now at the first snag I will change it out. Some last longer than others for some reason.
Ink is the same - I rarely throw away unused ink as I go through it quickly. But if I have some in a dinky dip, I will end up having to stir it and use a few drops of water. Sometimes I like it better when itís been worn down a bit.  :)

@AnasaziWrites Do you have an ink stirrer?

Such a hard decision! I think Stargazer and then Garland are my two favorites. But Iíve never met a teal I didnít like.  ;D

It looks like they donít have a website. Two different addresses listed for them:

Chesapeake Calligraphy Guild
PO Box 1320, Columbia, MD 21044


Chesapeake Calligraphy Guild
8861 Blue Sea Drive, Columbia, MD 21046-1413

Maybe sent a note to both and see if you get a response? Or hopefully someone in that area is on the forum.

Nothing to offer but do share an image once you play with it!  :)

Love this! If you cut it down into smaller pieces, it can be even more interesting!  :)

That is how I do it as well. I am going to try to learn the other pen hold technique this year.

Absolutely beautiful! Iím curious, are you using a regular pen hold or have you adapted the off-hand method of the masters?  :)
