- buttercuphoustonI could watch this all day! Beautiful!
- theleftieadvantageWhat nib is this, @lisaridgelycalligraphy? 😄
- apartment_34I so wish I could do that!
- ashiacoleI could watch you do that for hours!
- shastablastawrapsI agree with @the3bears. What nib?
- lhcalligraphy@johnnytinahui this is a straight pen with a brause nib. @rachelmayphoto for white I like Ziller north wind white @akahambing it's a brause nib but sadly I don't remember which number! @the3bears see above👆👆
- lhcalligraphy@the3bears this is hard to explain but I believe it has to do with the amount of pressure you're applying. And the angle of your wrist. If I press too hard all the ink comes out in a big blob. It takes practice I think to apply just the right amount of pressure....
- rachelmayphotoWhat about black ink? 😊
- lhcalligraphy@rachelmayphoto honestly it depends on the paper. I mix a lot of my own inks and combine different brands to get the right consistency. The paper plays a major role as I usually have to adjust the ink by thickening or thinning it it get it to work with whatever I'm writing on at the time. I do like the sumi kuretake, old world, and diamine inks usually. Hopefully this is helpful ☺️
- rachelmayphotoThank you, so much!! You've definitely helped!! ❤️
- merelee79I love watching you write @lhcalligraphy . I too am having to dip my nib after a few letters @the3bears ... Guess I need to practice my pressure. I've been using sumi ink and it just runs off the nib.
- lhcalligraphy@merelee79 try to add gum Arabic to it to thicken it a bit. A few drops then swirl the bottle around.
- aims_nicole@bransanders haha you hav no idea! I literally bought a calligraphy set like a month ago. I LOVE THIS!!
