Tools & Supplies / Iron Gall Ink
« on: October 31, 2013, 02:55:04 PM »
Does anyone have any thoughts to share on iron gall ink? I've never tried it, but am considering ordering some (Old World Iron Gall, particularly). I know it is known to be corrosive, but I am especially curious as to how severe/fast it eats away at the nibs. My go-to nib (Brause 511) is already a bit delicate, so I'm wondering if it will corrode it so quickly that it wouldn't even be practical to use them together.

Hi! I am a calligrapher located in Hanover, Pennsylvania. I have long held an interest in beautiful lettering, and began practicing calligraphy seriously about six years ago, beginning with italic, and then moving to pointed pen more recently. I am currently focused on refining my flourished copperplate hand, though I admire Spencerian and contemporary styles, too! I am self/book/video-taught at this point, but I joined IAMPETH earlier this year, and I hope to attend conferences and receive in-person instruction in the future!

I'm looking forward to our discussions and getting to know everyone!  :)
