Framed Calligraphy Gift: Take 4
« on: December 01, 2015, 10:23:33 PM »
Fourth time's the Charm. If all of a sudden this post appears three times I am really sorry. I'm not overly-enthusiastic about this. I kept getting an error when posting and then everything would disappear. On to the fun stuff.

I made these three framed pieces as a Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Years gift for my husbands aunt who hosted the celebrations this year. The style of flourishes come from a video posted on YouTube by Schin which I watched and practiced until I got them nice enough for these pieces. I think they turned out fairly well with the exception of "Thankful" that is a bit wonky towards the top.

Photos will hopefully be in the comments. I am having issue uploading them at the moment.

Great work!  They are all so beautiful and color coordinated.  What ink is that?

I used Pearl Ex pigment mixed with water and gum arabic.
