SMALL BOOKS AND FOLDED STRUCTURES TO ENHANCE YOUR CALLIGRAPHY
Diane Flack - DF2
Skill Level: All
This class will explore the many small books, folds, boxes, cards and envelopes that calligraphers use extensively. Working with calligraphy in forms other than a broadside is exciting and fun. Often these small calligraphic projects make great gifts. Just bring your favorite pen, ink and imagination.
Supplies:
  • pen and ink (N02, H111, I08)
  • scissors, x-acto knife or blade, ruler (S835, S417, S270)
  • bone folder, glue stick, awl, needle and thread, (S308, S391, S213, S825)
  • one letter size envelope, three greeting card envelopes - any color.
Optional: tags and/or an assortment of decorated papers
*Do not purchase any of these tools. I will bring some to share.

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
