P25. JNB Practice Pad 8.5x11
JNB Practice Pad. 8.5"x11".

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, McCaffery'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 20, 50, or 100 sheets.

For an 11"x17" version of this pad, see item P20.

N09. Speedball C Calligraphy Nibs
American calligraphy nibs for Italic, Blackletter (Gothic, Old English), Uncial, Half Uncial, Foundational and many other hands or alphabets. C-0, C-1, C-2, C-3, C-4, C-5, C-6. C-0 is largest, C-6 is smallest. Best in larger sizes. C-2, C-3, & C-4 are popular for beginners' classes. They rust easily so let them dry thoroughly before storing them away. Speedball C Calligraphy Nibs.

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.

Price break at 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

I07. Calli Ink
Calli Ink

Pigmented, waterproof ink for fountain pen and dip pen use. Colors are brighter and more opaque than dye ink such as Pelikan 4001, but less so than gouache. Specify color. 1oz.
