Uncial With Broad Edged Pen


UNCIAL WITH A BROAD EDGED PEN – Cora Pearl

Uncial is a beautiful ancient hand that was commonly in use from the fourth to eighth centuries by Latin and Greek scribes. Writing in Uncial is a wonderful way to connect with the long history of calligraphic writing. The characteristically wide and round letters can be serious or playful. We will start with basic Uncial strokes and learn the whole alphabet. This workshop is for those who consider themselves beginners in Uncial writing and also for those with more experience who wish to revisit the basics in order to revitalize and review this hand.

Skill Level: All

Supplies:

C-2 Speedball nib (N09) (If you are new to writing with the broad-edge pen be sure to prepare your nib by brushing the nib with a little bit of toothpaste using an old toothbrush—this will remove the oils used to make the nib and will help your ink low well when you are in class.)

Nib holder (H113),

Higgins Eternal black ink (I08) or walnut ink (I53),

Borden & Riley Layout Bond paper (9 x 12) (P09).

 


N09. Speedball C Calligraphy Nibs
American calligraphy nibs for Italic, Blackletter (Gothic, Old English), Uncial, Half Uncial, Foundational and many other hands or alphabets. C-0, C-1, C-2, C-3, C-4, C-5, C-6.

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
