What White ink can you suggest to me for Spencerian?

Dr. Ph. Martin's Bleed Proof White.

I love this stuff too - it's very opaque even when diluted enough to flow well through fine nibs.

Daniel, I really like BPW too. I recently discovered McCaffrey's White is also very nice. It makes for some smooth writing, but like most McCaff's you'll have to scoop out the globs after prolonged non-use.

Another vote for Bleedproof White! I keep tons of it on hand in case they discontinue this wonderful product!
