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

P20. JNB 11x17 Practice Pad
JNB Practice Pad 11"x17".

Smooth paper for pointed pen and broad edge calligraphy. The paper takes the ink well and does not bleed or feather with most inks. (We tested with Higgins Eternal, Noodler's, McCafferey's, and Richtone Colors, as well as Pilot Parallel Pen ink cartridges). For pointed pen, the smooth surface helps avoid pen catches on upstrokes. Guidelines will show through. Good for classes and practice (24 lb. bond).

Choose 50 or 100 sheets.

For an 8.5"x11" version of this pad, see item P25.

Formerly P20-50 & P20-100
