C24. Big Bad Bone-- Supplies
NEED TO BRING: Basic Tool Kit; one #4 (5/16") and/or #5 (½") Automatic pen; Pelikan 4001 ink (any color) or other water-based ink; watercolor palette (prefer Prang); grid paper pad (at least 11" x 14"); some better papers, (e.g., Fabriano Ingres, Arches hot press, Frankfurt)—scraps are fine—the more paper you have, the more possibility for experimentation; C-Thru ruler; a few sheets of tracing paper.

MATERIALS FEE: $8 [for bound handout book and experimental tool kit, practice paper, gum arabic container, water pots and name plates].


B2830. Finding the Flow/Jonas
Finding the Flow: A Calligraphic Journey by Gina Jonas. 2006. 85pp. 8.5" x 11". Spiral bound. Paper

A new approach to calligraphy for all levels, which acquaints the scribe with the essential but largely unexplored dynamics of stroke technique. Through stroke exercises with pencil and edged pen you explore vital movement and sensitive touch. You discover how shoulder, arm, fingers, and pen combine with alternating of pressure. The exercises lead to an intimate understanding of the edged pen: a foundation for formal alphabet study, creative alphabet design, and artistic self-expression! Begin
your calligraphy practice before starting formal alphabet study by warming up, sensitizing, and integrating mind and body. Full of illustrations and diagrams.

P21. JNB Graph Pad 11x17, 50 Sheets
JNB Graph Pad
Light blue grid (8 squares/inch). 24 lb bond. 11"x17". Approx. 50 sheets.

A non-bleeding paper that is great for calligraphy. (We use the same paper in our JNB Practice Pads.) Many instructors have their students use this pad in their classes.

(For graph with slant lines P01.)

Please choose color: Light or Dark.

Light: This grid does not show on many copiers, shows faintly on others, and usually disappears when you adjust the exposure one setting lighter. If you use a copier to produce your finished art for reproduction, this is the pad for you. This pad is good for jobs done at quick printers.

Dark: For classes, some students may appreciate a slightly darker grid. This is particularly true for adult classes. This is still a light blue grid. Some teachers have commented that their students found the original pad's grid was too light.

PS04. Frankfurt Paper
Frankfurt
22"x30". 120gsm. pH neutral. White.
19"x25". 120gsm. pH neutral. Cream.

A mixture of cotton and high alpha cellulose. Sheets have three deckle edges and one cut edge. High alpha cellulose is a very pure form of wood pulp which is considered to have the same longevity as cotton or other plant fibers.

This beautiful wavy laid paper is a favorite of Jean Formo. She uses it in her walnut ink classes. I find it easy to erase. Some inks allow correction with a white plastic eraser!

Grain direction is parallel to underlined dimension.

This paper ships separately from books/supplies and requires an extra shipping fee which is NOT included in the price of this product. Add item 'PS00' to your cart after adding large sheets of paper. (click to read details)
