It’s been about 7 weeks since my last post about wanting to learn calligraphy. I finally gave up on the hope that my beginners kit was ever going to come. In that time I had learned so much about it from Instagram and Periscopes, that I felt confident in being able to choose the materials I needed as a newbie. Which I did! And they arrived this week! I also had plenty of time to buy a desk, chair, and a few other little knick-knacks for my desk. So here we go….
Custom dinky dip holder by Fox + Quills
I purchased the oblique holder, nibs, ink, and book from Paper & Ink Arts. (Mastering Copperplate Calligraphy by Eleanor Winters, walnut ink, Nikko G nib, basic oblique holder.
Guidesheets by Bianca Mascorro. I’ve signed up for a beginners class of her’s next weekend! So nervous!
It’s harder than it looks. Maybe I make it look like it’s hard….that’s because it is. You thought you knew how to draw a straight line, huh? YOU DON’T.
This is going to be so fun 🙂
