N208. Dreaming Dogs Ruling Pen
N208. Dreaming Dogs Ruling Pen.

Dreaming Dogs ruling pens are designed with the traditional components of the tools already found on the market, with additional new features.

The lightness of the tool and its balance were prioritized, resulting in a comfortable grip and allowing for both fluid and gestural strokes.

Dreaming Dogs ruling pens are crafted in stainless steel with elastic properties, a material that has excellent strength and durability and that does not rust. It is easy to clean and provides lightness, flexibility and accuracy in strokes.

The wooden pen handles are handmade. The assembly of these pens is entirely manual, with the refinement and finishing done one by one to get the perfect fit. Varnish layers waterproof the handle and make the pens more durable and easier to clean.

K131. Carol's Ink Magic Folded Pen Kit
K131. Carol's Ink Magic Folded Pen Kit

While working with both Dark Blue and Yellow Ochre Winsor & Newton Calligraphy Inks, Carol DuBosch came across something special. She found that by dipping in one ink, then water, then the other ink, she could write in a wonderful mix of different colors. Depending on the particular mix of Blue and Yellow inks and the water, the colors were far from what you would expect -- it was ink magic! Carol was kind enough to share her discovery in Bound & Lettered issue 14.4.

This kit contains all that you need to create your own ink magic: a full-color copy of the B&L article with instructions for the technique and many examples of Carol's delightful calligraphy showcasing this ink magic, the two inks, a 6-well mixing palette, Carol's book Folded Pen Adventures, a Luthis Dragonfly Folded Pen (a Carol favorite), and an 8.5"x11" Gilbert Bond Pad.

Carol DuBosch lives and works in Portland, Oregon. She is a full-time freelance lettering artist who teaches calligraphy classes in the Pacific Northwest, and workshops for guilds throughout the United States. She frequently posts her work on Instagram: @caroldubosch

S1066. M. G. Ward Professional Hot Foiling Kit
S1066. M. G. Ward Professional Hot Foiling Kit

Developed by renowned penman Mike Ward and used for his own work, his hot-foil tool is now available for all who want to add bright, reflective gold to their projects on leather, cardstock, wood, and other surfaces. Mike tested and refined this professional-quality tool over several years before he was ready to put his name on it (literally). This tool works best with his Premium Heat Transfer Foil, but will work with other brands of foil as well.
The kit includes an adjustable, low-heat power supply (110V), carefully calibrated for foil work, and a heat pen with 3 interchangeable writing tips, both manufactured in Canada; assorted 10-sheet pack of Mike’s heat transfer foil; 3 practice leather bookmarks; and access to an online instructional video, detailing the foiling process. The ball-stylus tips are for monoline strokes and building up stressed (thick) parts of Spencerian and other scripts; two sizes are included, 0.4mm (1/64") and 0.8mm (1/32"). The calligraphy tip (4.5mm) is for broad-edged letterforms.

S1067. M. G. Ward Premium Heat Transfer Foil
S1067. M. G. Ward Premium Heat Transfer Foil is high-grade foil that allows you to add gorgeous shine to your projects. It is the best foil available for handwork. (Heat transfer foil is a thin, metallic foil with an adhesive backing; it is adhered to surfaces with the addition of heat.) This foil, once properly adhered, is permanent on the surface, making it perfect for use on leather accessories, commissioned work on thicker paper, covers of journals or planners, and other projects. Different surface materials may require a different combination of temperature, speed, and pressure - testing on a scrap piece of material is advised.
This foil works best with the M. G. Ward professional foiling tools, but it can be used with other heat tools that provide the right temperature for the foil to stick properly on your desired surface. (Tools with temperature control will offer the most versatile and successful foiling experience.) Ten-sheet pack, each sheet 8"x10".

Choose: Classic Gold, Copper, Rose Gold, Classic Silver, Smoke Silver, and Variety (2 of each color).
