Back-to-Back Book with Asemic Writing – 1NR1

  • painted on one side with color
  • washes of your choice
  • and cut into eleven 3" x 9" strips
  • 1/4" flat brush (BR24)
  • brush pen (FP128)
  • edged pen
  • brown or black ink (I08) (I150)
  • strong glue stick (S391)
  • scissors (S835)
  • bone folder (S308)
  • metal ruler (S270)
($3)


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

I150. True Walnut Ink
I150. True Walnut Ink.

This rich, sepia-colored ink is made from the hulls of the Black Walnut tree (Juglans nigra), which is found throughout most of the eastern United States. A small amount of isopropyl alcohol is added to help prevent mold growth. But if mold forms, just scrape it off - the ink is still good. Not suitable for use by children. Wide-mouth, 1oz glass jar.
