H78. Thick Wood Pen Holder
H78. Thick Wood Pen Holder

These short, turned hardwood penholders have a thicker grip. If you or your students have arthritis or joint problems, you may find these thicker pen holders easier to use. Some calligraphers also just like a thicker pen holder. Wood color will vary and there will be some variation in shape. Approx. 5" length.



Your Price

I139-4. Pearl Ex Pigments - 4oz.
I139. Pearl Ex Pigment Powder
4 oz.

July 2019: Aztec Gold is currently out of stock for this size.

This versatile powder mixes into ink with the addition of water and gum arabic. Or you can add directly to ink to give that ink pearlescence and shine. Pearl Ex creates a metallic effect without being a real metal- it will never tarnish or fade. The different particle sizes produce different effects, from a smooth pearly luster, to a highly metallic sheen.

Choose Color:
Rose Gold
Brilliant Gold
Solar Gold
Aztec Gold
Supper Copper

I139. Pearl Ex Color Chart on Black Paper

I139. Pearl Ex Color Chart on White Paper

To make a Pearl Ex ink for calligraphy:
Basic Recipe
Mix 4 parts of pigment with one part gum Arabic (liquid or powder) in a container, add distilled water slowly as you stir until you get the consistency of ink you like.
Exact measurement Recipe
1 teaspoon Pearl Ex pigment
¼ teaspoon gum Arabic (liquid or powder)
1 teaspoon distilled water
Thinner consistency Pearl Ex ink will lie flatter on the paper when dry; a thicker consistency ink (try ½ teaspoon of water) will stand up a bit on the paper when dry, creating a raised effect. Recipe courtesy of Joi Hunt of Bien Fait Calligraphy.

See also I139-S for the Pearl Ex Calligraphy Set of nine 3-gram jars of color good for making ink and three 3-gram jars of powdered gum arabic.
