H129. Dual-Use Workshop Holder (Oblique + Straight)
H129. Dual Use Workshop Holder (Oblique + Straight)

This inexpensive holder serves as both a straight holder and an oblique holder! Just remove the flange to use as a straight holder. The brass oblique flange is tilted to decrease the angle of the nib to the paper, making your upstrokes less likely to catch on the paper. Perfect for workshops and beginners; we are happy to offer this exceptional holder at a very reasonable price.

Winsor & Newton Calligraphy Inks (Blue Caps)

The first six colors are a double primary palette, for mixing clean colors. 30ml bottle.

I37. McCaffery's Penman's Ink
I37. McCaffery’s Penman’s Ink
1 oz. jar.

Formulated for the pointed pen which is used for Spencerian, Copperplate, etc, not for the broad-edged pen used for Italic, Blackletter (Gothic), etc.

The black ink is an oak gall ink which was developed with the help of leading penmen of today to provide an ink similar to that used during America’s golden age of Ornamental Penmanship in the 19th and 20th centuries. With a newly opened bottle, The black ink writes brown but turns a dense black. Good for fine hairlines.

(Colors and whites are not oak gall inks. They are made with natural pigments).

Choose from Ivory, White, Indigo Blue, Green, Brown, Red, Red-Violet, Black, Glossy Black.
Prices of colors vary.

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

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
