H105. Cork Tip Holder
H105. Cork Grip Holder.

These holders are very similar to the popular Koh-I-Noor 127 N cork-tip penholder (H38) and the General Pencil version (H99) that we also sell. (Other than the logo, I can't see any difference between those and this lower-priced version.) Scribes like the comfortable cushion of the cork, and the grip is thicker than standard wood penholders. Many calligraphers find this kind of holder a pleasure to use. Standard metal nib gripper. From Germany.

Choose from three finishes: Natural, Brown, Black.

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

P39. Cotton Comp Pad
October 2019: Both sizes of this pad are out of stock. Any backorders will be cancelled. For a similar pad please see P32 Canson Pro Marker Layout.

This layout pad from Borden & Riley is 100% Rag Marker with a very smooth finish. The paper takes ink without bleeding or feathering. With these great qualities, this pad is a step-up from the regular Marker Layout. 50 sheets.


"The Cotton Comp paper is now my favorite, as it is more
translucent and letters can be traced through it more easily than through layout paper, yet it has more substance than tracing paper."
-- Sheila Waters. Cyberscribes, January 2008.
