S897-1/2. Nalgene 1/2 ounce Dropper Bottle
S897-1/2. Nalgene 1/2 ounce Dropper Bottle.

Also available in a 2oz bottle: S897-2

These leak-proof bottles allow you to use liquids without having to open a jar. Harvest Crittenden uses them to store and dispense Instacoll. She can decant a bulk container into these bottles, and it does not dry out (a problem with the wide-mouth containers). You can also now purchase Instacoll already in the 2 oz size (see item code S892).

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.

M98. Yoropen
M98. Yoropen.

Use this ballpoint pen to practice script letterforms. The crook functions similar to the familiar flange of the oblique holder. The Yoropen’s crook and the oblique flange help with the pronounced slant of Copperplate, Engrosser’s Script, Spencerian, and similar scripts: you can keep the paper more vertical while you write. This is a regular ballpoint pen, so you don’t get thicks and thins, but it’s a great tool for beginners learning forms and slant.

Specify Color and Size.
Pen Sizes: Regular and Mini.
Colors: Red, Green, Purple (Regular)
Purple, Blue (Mini)

The Mini size is a pencil and not a pen.

FP130. Noodler’s Brush Fountain Pen
FP130. Noodler’s Brush Fountain Pen.

Because it has a twist-fill mechanism built into the pen, you can fill this brush pen with bottled fountain pen ink. Try any of the Noodler’s colors or other bottled ink for fountain pens. When the ink runs out, just refill from the bottle. To change colors, rinse pen with water (going from black to colors is not recommended). The synthetic brush is fine-tipped, responsive, and has a good ink flow.

Specify barrel: Tortoise Shell, Black, Clear.
