P01-8. JNB Copperplate / Engrossers Pad 8.5X11in
P01-8. JNB Graph Pad with Slant Lines for Copperplate. 24lb bond.
8.5" x 11". Approx. 50 sheets.
Slant lines - 55-degree angle

Smooth paper for pointed pen. 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.) The smooth surface helps avoid pen catches on upstrokes.

Approx. 50 sheets with a blue grid and slanted lines for copperplate, 8 squares/inch. Grid may show up with some copiers. This pad takes the place of copperplate guidelines.

This paper is available in Blank Pads (see items P20 and P25).
For an 11"x17" Copperplate Graph Pad, use code P01-11
For a regular 11"x17" graph pad for broad-edged penwork, use code P72 (Gilbert Graph Pad)

P80. Rhodia Ice Notepad
P80. Rhodia Ice Notepad.

Highly recommended for pointed pen work. Non-bleeding, bright white, smooth satin finish, 80gsm (22lb), acid-free, pH neutral paper. Micro-perforated to provide a clean edge when you tear out the sheet. Very similar to the regular Rhodia Pads, but with gray lines/graph. Some say the paper is also smoother. White cover.

Choose Lined or Graph.

Sizes:
4" x 6"
6" x 8.25"
8.25" x 11.3"

S1015. Ash Bush Tilted Ink Holder
S1015. Ash Bush Tilted Ink Holder

Made of unfinished pine, it holds two bottles (included): one upright and the other at a slant, which makes for easier dipping. Handmade in the USA by Ash Bush.

S853. Jumbo Dinky Dip
S853. Jumbo Dinky Dip.

Similar to our Screw-Top Small Dinky Dip (S934), but with larger screw-top jars (1/2 oz) and a larger unfinished wooden base.

Choose your base shape:
1-Square (1 jar) 2.75"x2.75"
4-Square (4 jars): 3.5"x3.5"
4-Rectangle (4 jars): 1.5"x6.5"

The bases are made so that the jars fit tightly in their holes, but also made so you can remove the jars. To remove a jar, you might need to wiggle the jar back and forth while pulling. It can take some effort. Of course, you will want to make sure the lid is screwed on well before starting to remove the jar. When replacing a jar -- if you want it to be removable again -- push it into the hole just enough for it to be secure, but not as deep as it will go.

Jar inside dimensions: approximately 28mm dia. x 25mm high

Refills: S844 or S856

S896. Artist and Illuminator Bridge.

Rest your hand on this sturdy wooden bridge as you work, adding detail to your gilding, lettering, and painting without smearing the wet portions.

Made in the U.S. of solid cherry wood. A self-adhesive felt pad is included for those who want a cushion rest for their hand.

See Harvest Crittenden demonstrate its use in her video on gilding with Instacoll: Gilding with Instacoll by Harvest Crittenden

K130. Carol's Ink Magic Kit
K130. Carol's Ink Magic Kit

While working with both Dark Blue and Yellow Ochre Winsor & Newton Calligraphy Inks, Carol DuBosch came across something special. She found that by dipping in one ink, then water, then the other ink, she could write in a wonderful mix of different colors. Depending on the particular mix of Blue and Yellow inks and the water, the colors were far from what you would expect -- it was ink magic! Carol was kind enough to share her discovery in Bound & Lettered issue 14.4.

This kit contains all that you need to create your own ink magic: a full-color copy of the B&L article with instructions for the technique and many examples of Carol's delightful calligraphy showcasing this ink magic, the two inks, and a 6-well mixing palette.

Carol DuBosch lives and works in Portland, Oregon. She is a full-time freelance lettering artist who teaches calligraphy classes in the Pacific Northwest, and workshops for guilds throughout the United States. She frequently posts her work on Instagram: @caroldubosch
