    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

    P32. Canson Pro-Layout Marker Pad
    Canson Pro-Layout Marker Pad. Bright White, 18lb, marker layout pad. 50 sheets.

    Our highest quality layout paper for calligraphy practice or work for reproduction. The very smooth surface does not buckle, even with wide chisel nibs. Black guidelines under the sheet are easily seen, even without a light table. Michael Sull's favorite pad for work for reproduction. His recommendation is echoed by other scribes and penmen: "Absolutely wonderful." "A great pad." It is worth the price.

    Choose 9x12, 11x14, or 14x17 inches.

    Formerly P32-9, P32-11, & P32-14

    P69. Gilbert Bond 25% Cotton Practice Pad 8.5x11 inch
    P69. Gilbert Bond 25% Cotton Practice Pad 24lb.
    8.5"x11", pad of 100 sheets.

    A great pad for broad-edged pen practice. Has a nice tooth and holds good hairlines. Acid-free. Highly recommended by Peter Thornton.

    Also available as 11"x17" pad (item P70)
    8.5"x11" ream (not padded, item P69-REAM)

    "Calligraphers in Portland [Oregon] have been using Gilbert Bond for years and years and LOVE it totally. My students and I have decided that 'we are worth it' and use Gilbert for practice. We think using a better paper makes our calligraphy practice seem more important (and practice is so important!). I thoroughly recommend the paper; it would be hard to recommend Gilbert Bond too highly!" - Carol DuBosch
