Tools & Supplies / Anyone tried a Falcon nib?
« on: March 01, 2014, 11:39:27 AM »
Has anyone tried Hunt #98 nibs?  They seem to be called Falcon nibs too because of their 2 piece structure that makes it look like a falcon's head.  If anyone has tried this, do you like this?  What kind of nib is this?  Flex, non-flex, easy to use, hard to use?  I googled and can't find much info.

Thanks in advance!!!

I am a newbie to Copperplate calligraphy.  I found this forum a few days ago through Besotted blog and finally got a chance to register and start my supply list.

Erica, thank you for this forum and for the lessons.
I can't wait to order my inks, papers, and nibs!!!


Tools & Supplies / Dr. Martin's Bleedless White Ink vs Pen Ink?
« on: January 18, 2014, 08:49:45 PM »

I am looking to buy white ink to write on kraft cardstock or kraft envelopes.
Most likely, will be using white more for kraft than black paper.

Could you suggest which ink would be best?
Also, would love nib suggestions for either ink.
I heard the nibs last much less when used on these inks so would like to know which nibs to buy extras of!

Thank you in advance!
