TALL GRASSES MONOLINE LETTERING

1  2 

TALL GRASSES MONOLINE LETTERING
Cora Pearl - CP1
Skill Level: All Monoline lettering with Speedball B-nibs is delightfully easy relative to the usual calligrapher's tools of the broad edged pen and the pointed pen. Because the thickness remains the same throughout each letter we do not have to think about pen angle or pressure on the nib as much as we do with the more traditional nibs. Tall Grasses letters were created by Cora Pearl for one of her Design classes. These were inspired by looking at tall grass and the letters are tall and bend and sway. There are many possibilities for using these letters on their own or combined with other styles and tools. This class is a good choice for students who want to learn an easy new lettering style, for students who want to explore the use of B-nibs, and for students who want to write modern style letters.
Supplies:
  • B-3 nib, nib holder (N16, H111)
  • Higgins Eternal (I08)
  • Prang (or other) watercolors (S609)
  • ½" flat brush, and any other watercolor brushes you already have (BR60)
  • Pebeo masking fluid (S198)
  • three pieces of 8" x 10" Arches 140lb hot press paper (PA42)
  • T-square (S753)
  • pencil, two paper clips , eraser (PL38, E13)
  • bond paper thin enough to see through such as Gilbert Bond paper (P70)
Provided: Several handouts
Materials Fee: $1

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
