H132. Crystalline Oblique Holders
H132. Crystalline Oblique Holders

Turned from colored resin, these beautiful cylindrical holders look like honey-colored marble or amethyst-colored jewelstone. Fitted for a G nib, the flange can easily be modified to hold other nibs. The brass oblique flange is tilted to decrease the angle of the nib to the paper, making your upstrokes less likely to catch on the paper. Approx 3/8" dia., 7.75" long, (1cm dia., 15cm long).

Choose color: Honey or Lavender.

B4219. Incorporating Modern Flourishes / Cheng
B4219. Incorporating Modern Flourishes into Your Lettering by Jarrin Cheng. 2017. 88pp. 8.5"x11". Paper, spiral binding.

Once you have learned your letters, it is time to enliven and embellish your letters and words with loops, swoops, turns, and extensions - in short, flourishing. This guide and trace-and-copy workbook takes you through flourishing rules, various components of flourishes, how to enter and exit letters, how to compose a flourished layout, and how to evaluate your work. Then, with trace-and-copy pages, you learn a variety of flourishes for each letter, from A-Z, both capital and small letters. The book is best with brush markers, and for beginners the author recommends the Tombow Hard Fudenosuke brush pen. (If you use a pointed metal nib, the workbook pages are good with Walnut Crystals and McCaffery’s Penman ink, but Higgins Eternal feathers.)
