Carol's Favorite Tools


My favorite writing tool (at the moment!) is the Folded Pen. I especially like the elegant Tim's Pens and the Luthis Libelula. My favorite papers (at the moment) are Hahnemuhle and Khadi because of the interesting surface textures. Both of these papers are wonderful with the Folded Pen. My favorite writing fluids are Dr. Martin's Pen White, watercolor and gouache.

List of Tools
  • Tim's Pens (N148)
  • Luthis Pen - Libelula/Dragonfly (N155)
  • Hahnemuhle German Ingres (PS22-WHI)
  • Khadi Rag Paper (PS103)
  • Dr. Martin's Pen White (I108)
  • Watercolor and Gouache (Click HERE for our selection)


N155. Luthis Pens
N155. Luthis Pens.

Folded metal pens for expressive writing and formal calligraphy. The tips are aluminum; the handles are unfinished wood. Approximately 6" long. Four styles are offered; each writes differently. The pens are from Argentina; they are labeled with their Spanish names.

"They give great edges and hairlines and flow beautifully. For as thin an edge as it has, it's amazingly stable. And the thin handle makes manipulation easy. I can recommend them highly." - Carrie Imai

Butterfly (Mariposa). Has two writing edges.
Moth (Polillita). A smaller version of Butterfly (Mariposa).
Fan (Abanico). The writing edge curve is similar to a standard folded pen or calligraphy ruling pen.
Dragonfly (Libélula). The writing edge has a unique curve that allows you to change writing styles quickly. Carol DuBosch’s favorite of the four.

Purchase all four and save: use code N155-S4.

We have added a new, larger pen:
Moth XXL (Polilla XXL). This is a larger version of the Moth.

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

I108. Dr. Martin's Pen White
Dr. Martin's Pen-White

A great white ink for pointed pen work! 1oz dropper bottle. Can be thinned with water if necessary.

"The new ink is Dr Martin's Pen White, which sold out at Odyssey. I loved it so much that I went back to the supply store and bought a second bottle. Pat Blair tried it, and it worked beautifully out of the bottle with her Spencerian script. No mixing required. The dropper made dispensing easy. It did get a bit thicker as I was using it, and I added a bit of water to the dropper. All my pieces (white on dark paper) at Osyssey and at Iampeth were done using that ink. -- Aline Chan
