Back-to-Back Book with Asemic Writing


Back-to-Back Book with Asemic Writing – 1NR1
Nan Robkin

Supplies:
  • Cold press 90 or 140 lb. watercolor paper (PS41)
  • painted on one side with color
  • washes of your choice
  • and cut into eleven 3" x 9" strips
  • 1/4" flat brush (BR24)
  • brush pen (FP128)
  • edged pen
  • brown or black ink (I08) (I150)
  • strong glue stick (S391)
  • scissors (S835)
  • bone folder (S308)
  • metal ruler (S270)
($3)


PS41. Arches 90# Cold Press 22in X 30in
Arches Watercolor
Cold Press 90lb. 22"x30".

Superior quality, 100% rag, for pen and all techniques with opaque and transparent watercolor. Long used by calligraphers. Cold press watercolor paper can be used for calligraphy but the letters won't be as crisp. You will see the cold press texture in your lettering. HP (Hot press) finish is a very smooth sheet that will give a sharp smooth edge to your letters. This has always been one of our most popular sheets.

This paper ships separately from books/supplies and requires an extra shipping fee which is NOT included in the price of this product. Add item 'PS00' to your cart after adding large sheets of paper. (click to read details)

I08. Higgins Eternal Ink
I08. Higgins Eternal Ink.

A non-waterproof, carbon black ink for dip pens. Our most popular ink for classes. Recommended for copperplate (add a few drops of gum arabic). Perhaps the best ink for calligraphy for a beginner; it will cause the beginner the fewest problems. This ink will bleed more readily than other inks. If bleeding is a problem try Sumi Inks. 2.5 oz.

Quantity discounts start at 6 & 12.

"For broad-pen writing, I add gouache to Higgins Eternal. Gouache gives Eternal some needed body. It doesn't necessarily have to be black gouache. Indigo or a dark red add an interesting hue to the result. In a quarter ounce of Eternal, I add about a 3/8 inch bead of gouache from a tube. Eternal doesn't give me the hairlines I want in pointed pen work, so for that I much prefer iron gall or walnut ink". - Bob Hurford

I150. True Walnut Ink
I150. True Walnut Ink.

This rich, sepia-colored ink is made from the hulls of the Black Walnut tree (Juglans nigra), which is found throughout most of the eastern United States. A small amount of isopropyl alcohol is added to help prevent mold growth, but if mold forms, just scrape if off – the ink is still good. It is not suitable for use by children, but you can make your own without added alcohol (see I148. Dried Walnut Hulls or I149. Walnut Ink Kit). Wide-mouth, 1oz glass jar.
