Show & Tell / Stunt Romans with Nina Tran
« on: July 22, 2024, 10:20:35 PM »
Took a great workshop this weekend taught by Nina Tran. Stunt Romans which she discovered in a Speedball Textbook. It was such a relaxing class and I had a chance to break out my fountain pen Husband gave me as a birthday gift a couple years ago. I donít know what took me so long except I had never filled a fountain pen and I was intimidated. It was SO easy! Wish I did it years ago. It writes like a DREAM!

Highly recommend the class if you ever get a chance to take it. She also offers a minuscules class which I missed.

Another fabulous exchange! Thought I would share mine. I saved all the ones I received so I can open them altogether. Sometimes I like to extend the suspense.  :-*

Hand Lettering / Re: Hand Lettering Anyone?
« on: July 15, 2024, 10:49:29 AM »
We have seen a resurgence of hand lettering in all manner of communication here in the states. Greeting cards, logo design, book covers, and advertisements seem to be the most popular. I did a lot of hand lettering in my childhood but back then I thought it was ďcheatingĒ to draw the letters. I didnít know that is actually how it is done. Calligraphy took over around age ten.

Hello Tom!

Thanks @AnasaziWrites - the pen inspired him to learn as he made it for himself.  ;D

Thank you @darrin1200 ! That is so kind of you! He may take you up on that. He loves connecting with other pen makers.  :-*

My husband has taught himself how to turn calligraphy pens and it has become a new obsession for him! He finally made himself a pen and asked me to teach him Engrosser's Script so he can properly use it. We had a great first lesson which was ended when our Siberian, Bloo, decided it was dinner time and Adam was done writing.

P.S. Adam was shocked at how quickly 3 hours went by and just wanted to "try one more" before stopping. This is going to work out nicely for me. Wish I thought of it years ago - LOL!  ;D
