@JanisTX You crack me up!  Iím so envious of those who get to chit chat with you at IAMPETH!  I hope youíre having a great time. 

Thank goodness Joi did so much Pearl-Ex grunt work for us! I love that stuff - when it does work!  But I do not have the patience to use it on its own.  ::)

@JanisTX have you tried mixing pearlex in with metallic gouache?  I use it with Royal Talens metallic gouaches (I donít use any of there color gouaches, only metallic, but I find the golds of other gouaches to be unattractive) and the pearlex brightens up the gouache and the gouache helps with the flow and prevents the PearlEx particles from sinking quickly.  This is also how I got the copper PearlEx to work.  Terrible on its own, fabulous mixed with a copper gouache. 

@AnasaziWrites you and I had a chat about vintage Gillott 170s a while back - now THAT is a delicate nib!  I love it so much and I never use it.   But yes, the vintage 303s are magnificent.

@Vintage_BE I am cleaning out my nib stash and have decided Iíll never use the blue/new 303s that Iíve had for ages.  Iím happy to mail them to you if you PM me your address.  Itíll spare me the discomfort of throwing them out.

Lol my hand is raised - excellent little ditty, Mark!

And I never remove my nibs when Iím done working.

Erica, I did plant a climbing hydrangea in the fall - weíll see how it goes! Iím so thrilled for you that you have all those blooms - what a joy to go outside and see all that life.

Gorgeous, Erica!!  Wow.  I am envious of all of you who have such beautiful blooms in your yards.  My yard is shaded by redwood trees and a huge messy magnolia so Iím still trying to find shade friendly bloomers. I do have a cymbidium orchid in full bloom at least, otherwise itís all justÖ green!  Iíll have a small amount of anemones later in the year.

Crud, I cannot believe I missed the last one.  Iíve been amiss in the community (and missing it) but always enjoyed the exchanges.  So many wonderful themes, ideas and unique treasures in the mail.  Thank you, Erica.

Welcome Aries!  I am a huge Harry Potter fan myself. In fact, I have a wizard wand pen holder - I just couldn't help myself.

It's not very often I hear someone say they enjoy the smell of sumi ink; usually it's quite the opposite, so that made me chuckle.  I personally don't mind it, but I also barely notice the smell anymore.

Anyhow, it sounds like you're loving every bit of calligraphy, and that's wonderful!  We're glad to have you here.

Hi Gen,

Welcome to posting! ;) Don't be nervous to share your work -  having people review it and asking for help is a great way to improve.  There is no judgement here, only enthusiastic help!
