Can anyone decipher what is BC using in this "inkwell", looks like a powder, gum arabic, fairy dust?  ;D

Tools & Supplies / Art & Calligraphy Supplies in Singapore
« on: February 26, 2015, 07:20:48 PM »
 Just want to ask our Singaporean friends here, where to shop for art supplies, paper, fountain pens and specifically calligraphy I have 3 day stop in Singapore in May.

- ArtFriend, where is the biggest branch? I've only been in Takashimaya but it's apparently closed now

Where do you buy your stuff? Finally, are art supplies covered by GST refund?

Thank You

Coffee & Nib-bles / Chinese calligraphy by a woman with no hands.

We were in Malacca, Malaysia and chanced upon this handicap woman who was doing Chinese calligraphy. Had my mom's name written with a little donation. Amazing isn't it? Proves that if there's a will there's a way.

Tools & Supplies / Making your own ink / iron gall ink etc.
« on: January 20, 2015, 12:48:37 PM »
Has anyone tried to make their own ink? I'm experimenting right now and following this http://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/index.php/topic/230340-pomegranate-ink/

I don't have access to gall oaks or walnut so I had to bring pomegranate peels all the way from Bangkok, they don't grow where I live. This one has been fermenting for a month. 



I experimented with malabar spinach before as dyes, I simply boiled them, they weren't light fast but the shades of deep pink purple was gorgeous.
