Open Flourish | General Discussion / Black paper white ink question
« on: November 30, 2018, 10:10:30 PM »
Hi all, happy holidays to everyone!

When I'm using black paper and white ink I currently use a soapstone pencil to create my guidelines - which never come out equidistant to each other. Any tips? Know of any products (like the Lettermate for instance that I use for addressing envelopes but larger) that can help me quickly create temporary guidelines?

Open Flourish | General Discussion / Rust in Flange?

I am beginning to suspect there may be a bit of rust in my flange.  Anyone have a method to remedy?  It's a carrot oblique holder with a metal fixed flange.

Open Flourish | General Discussion / Beginners Rut?
« on: September 27, 2018, 06:01:27 PM »
Hi all!  I'm new to the forum and newish to calligraphy as of this year.  I may be suffering from having too much information to have started with because I think I'm in a bit of a learning rut now, if you will.

So far, I have taken a workshop class in person, I've downloaded sample styles of calligraphy workbooks essentially, I've had a 2 hour private lesson, and watched more YouTube calligraphy videos than is reasonably necessary (so hypnotizing!).

So my question is this, is it best that I choose a style and learn those letters through and through in order to advance myself, do I need to maybe create my own exemplar and work off of that?  I can do certain letters in certain style and others in other styles and I don't necessarily think I'm advancing much per se.  Any advice would be much appreciated!

Within the past 6-7 months, I have been learning calligraphy and hand lettering.  I am enjoying it so very much and am looking to challenge myself further by way of this forum.  Thank you for approving me, I look very much forward to the posts and information shares!
