    N27. Automatic Pen
    N27. Automatic Pen.
    Sizes: 1 (1/16"), 2 (1/8"), 3 (3/16"), 3A (1/4"), 4 (5/16"), 4A (3/8), 5 (1/2"), 6 (3/4"), 6A (1").

    These poster pens are made of a non-rust nickel silver with a plastic handle. They produce very thin thins. Use them with the tooth blade uppermost. Clean with warm water after use. A new pen should be filled and worked gently on paper
    until the color (ink) flows. Any possible sign of scratching will soon wear off with use.

    IS29. Chinese Ink Stick - Dense Black
    A very black inkstick from China. Great for western calligraphy. Stick ink can be used for calligraphy and sumi painting. 4.4 x 1.1 x .5 inches (11.2 x 2.8 x 1.3 cm).

    In my opinion (and in many others) stick ink is the best ink you can use. I have never yet found a bottled ink that comes near to stick ink, Chinese or Japanese, though western calligraphers tend to prefer Chinese as it is blacker. It is well worth the short time it takes to grind. It can be transferred by pipette to a small container with lid. Don't reserve it for practice but use it instead of bottled inks for best work too.

    PS103. Khadi White Rag Paper
    PS103. Khadi White Rag Paper.

    210gsm (100lb). Handmade from 100% long fibred cotton rag, giving the paper exceptional strength and durability. Surface-sized with gelatin. Acid free. For calligraphy, drawing, watercolor.

    Available in a Rough or Smooth (Cold Press) finish. 22"x30".
    Note: The printed catalog mislabels these papers. The paper labeled in CP in the catalog is Rough; the paper labeled HP is Smooth.

    This paper from India is a handmade sheet and does not look as refined as European mouldmade watercolor papers such as Arches or Fabriano Artistico. (Its slightly irregular dimensions may be the reason its edges/corners are often bumped). Christopher Haanes has introduced it to North American scribes through his workshops in the US and Canada.

    "I particularly like the Khadi's White cotton rag paper, both in smooth and rough." - Christopher Haanes, Norway
