David Grimes


David Grimes is a calligrapher and designer from Portland, Oregon who specializes in Engrosser's Script calligraphy.

David's approach is modular in nature, and derived from the concept that each small skill learned will eventually contribute to an overall excellence in script writing.

I53-2.5. Walnut Drawing Ink
I53-2.5. Tom Norton's Walnut (Color) Ink

A rich sepia ink.Thin with water to create a wash. For brush or dip pen. Already liquid. Non-waterproof (but not suitable for fountain pens).
70ml , 2.36 oz.

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.

N77. Hunt 101 Nib
Hunt 101.

A very steady and durable nib, the Hunt 101 is a great choice for projects that require larger writing with x-heights above 1/4". It can be used on most paper surfaces, though it can have a tendency to catch on the upstroke when used on a rougher surface. The Hunt 101 requires firm and deliberate pressure to open swells, while its strength and steadiness makes it an ideal selection for student practice.

N74. Gillott 404 Nib
N74. Gillott 404 Nib.

A popular nib. Fairly stiff nib, suitable for writing at x-heights from 3/16" to 1/4", on all surfaces from smooth to textured. Good choice for beginners (or those with a heavy hand.) Because they require more pressure to create the swells, stiffer nibs are easier to control. Thicker hairlines than others, making it a good choice for work for reproduction.

Recommended by Eleanor Winters in her Mastering Copperplate Calligraphy (B1109) for beginners and professionals because they "provide fine line quality without being too fragile." Satisfactory for Spencerian Script.

H96. Adjusted Oblique Plastic Holder with Metal Flange
This comfort-grip, black plastic, “hourglass” holder with an oblique brass flange is a great improvement over the Speedball Oblique Holder. The flange is tilted to decrease the angle of the nib to the paper, making your up-stokes less likely to catch on the paper and the flange is pre-adjusted for our most popular nibs.
For right-handers, the offset flange allows for the slant of pointed pen scripts without having to severely cant the writing paper. Some left-handed scribes also use an oblique pen holder.
This replaces the Peerless Oblique Holders.

Specify Size: Brause 66EF, Gillott 303, Nikko G or Principal EF.
(Like all similar holders, the flange can be adjusted for additional nib sizes. If you would like holders for a class adjusted for a different nib, let us know and we will add the size to our inventory.)
