Your Price $11.95
FP118. Pilot Plumix Fountain Pen
Pilot Plumix Fountain (Cartridge) Pen. List Price $9.29.

A new calligraphy pen. Tip is between .75mm & 1mm (similar in size to the Manuscript Fine or the Pentel Italic 0.8 Marker). It's not billed as a calligraphy pen, but that's what it is. There is no ball on the bottom of the nib, so you get thicks and thins. Barrel is translucent with a clear grip area, so it is easy to see when you are low on ink.

Choose barrel color: Black (Dark Grey), Purple, Light Blue. Each pen includes one black cartridge. For refill cartridges, use Pilot Parallel Pen Cartridges. (see item FP69)

Customer reviews of the pen.


Your Price $9.29 $8.36

S898. Jerry Tresser’s Liquid Gesso
S898. Jerry Tresser's Liquid Gesso. 8 grams.

Use this prepared gesso for manuscript illumination. His special slaked plaster recipe, based on Cennini's centuries-old formula and adjusted to work with Titanium Oxide, is now available in easy-to-use liquid form! (Jerry has used this gesso for his personal work for over 30 years.) It is tinted pink using gilder's bole, the traditional pigment. The gesso comes ready to use with brush or ruling pen. An easy adjustment is made for use with pointed or broad-edged pen or quill - directions are included (never dilute with water). Stir before using to remix the ingredients. It applies smoothly with no air bubbles or pinholes (never shake to remix!). Stored tightly sealed in its liquid form in your refrigerator; it will keep for years. Does not contain White Lead, but instead uses non-poisonous Titanium dioxide for the white pigment.
