  • How to choose a dip pen nib for drawing - J and T's Art Calligraphy
    on a sheet of A4 plain light weight paper 90 gm fold the paper in half before writing Place the folded paper on a table or hard surface and write a couple of sentences in your normal writing style Now check the reverse of the paper to see how much it has been impressed by you and the pencil also check the folded half to see if an impression has been made on it If the pressure has caused the paper to be impressed and an impression is showing on the folded half this would indicate a fair amount of pressure often expressed as a heavy hand If on checking the reverse side of the written paper the paper is slightly impressed but there is little impression showing on the folded half this would indicate normal hand pressure For a person with a light hand pressure there would be very little or no indication of the written paper being impressed Knowing your own hand pressure helps when choosing the elastic of the nib The manufactures write up of the nib usually relates to a normal hand pressure if you are reading someone else s write up it s best to know their hand pressure in order to evaluate it As a general guide Someone with a light hand will often use nibs with high elastic These nib are delicate responsive and easily damaged it takes very little pressure to bend open the tines The nib action often feels soft and too springy for a normal hand Someone with a heavy hand will often prefer a stiffer nib with low elastic These nibs are robust and responsive it takes more than normal hand pressure to bend open the tines The nib action often feels strong and stiff to a normal hand For the normal hand just the term elastic if used normal hand pressure can bend open the tines of these responsive nibs They feel neither too soft or strong and they neither too stiff or springy but the elastic of the nib often varies slightly with different makers I would suggest you try as many different nibs as possible dip pen nibs are not usually expensive Try for at least three different types that allow you to comfortably express your lines Different tips The tip of dip pen nibs for drawing tend to fall into two main categories ones that have a needle point tip and those with a more blunt point and usually have a rounded ball nib tip This shows the underside of the Gillott 303 nib a needle point tip This shows the underside of the Brause Cito Fein a rounded tip If you are looking to produce fine hair like lines then a sharp needle point tip is the best choice Nibs with a rounded tip will give fine lines but because of the larger area of the rounded tip which supplies more ink to the paper they will not give hair like lines The Gillott

    letter writing calligraphy and some finished drawing work that will be protected by glass Pelikan 4001 and Classical Transparent would fall into this category Waterproof ink on the other hand it not recommended for fountain pens and most technical pens but dip pens quill brush and ruling pens are ideal The ink is waterproof when dry therefore perfect for pen and wash or where the surface is to we wetted cleaning is not always as simple as washing the nib under the tap as ink allowed to dry on the nib can be quite difficult to remove Drawing Ink A Indian Ink and Permanent Pigmented Ink would fall into this category Lightfast ness also referred to as Permanence durability The pigment or dye that the ink is made from usually has a tested lightfast quality this indicates if it will fade or not when in daylight conditions Lightfast ness tends to be expressed as excellent very good good etc Permanence is usually expressed as permanent semi permanent etc Ink with a poor lightfast permanence quality will fade loose its colour quickly over time It s also best not to keep ink work in sunlight or very bright daylight conditions Dye based inks mainly for fountain pens are not usually as lightfast as pigment inks Pigmented inks are usually lightfast and not for use with fountain pens Permanence can also be used in a different context as in permanent marker immovability in this instance it refers to the fact that the ink is permanent when dry and will not rub off when applied this is not it s lightfast ness because this ink may fade quickly over time You will need to read the write up on the ink to establish the makers meaning of permanence pH acidity alkalinity For your ink work to have archival qualities you need as near as possible pH neutral ink The range classed as pH neutral for ink is up to 8 0 8 5 and down to 6 0 5 5 where Ph neutral is 7 00 Most inks today are made within this range but some inks made from historical formulas are very acidic and can over time eat burn through the paper and leave holes where the writing once was Flow Ink needs to flow from the nib or instrument There are no hard and fast rules about the flow of the ink but as a general guide transparent ink flows faster from the nib then opaque ink Many inks need stirring because over time the pigment settles to the bottom of the bottle these are often slower flowing inks Stirring is the preferred method as shaking the bottle can produce copious bubbles which makes the ink difficult to work with Dried ink on the nib or reservoir of dip pen nibs will slow the flow you may also need to wipe the nib often when using faster drying inks Having decided what you are using the ink for pen and wash

  • Pounce Pouches - how to use them and what they are for at J and T's Art Calligraphy online-shop
    cat pounces on a mouse or a bird swoops down and pounces on its prey or if you watch young animals at play they jump up and with two front feet together pounce down on something Not so in the Drawing Office world pounce is a powder used to make the surface you are working on take ink better but the action of using a pounce bag or pouch is about the same as those described above It can also be used to transfer master designs or theorems that are made using a tracing wheel The pounce powder at one time was powdered Cuttlefish but for many years now it has been chalk based because chalk just loves grease in all its forms One thing that will mar any ink work is grease It causes the ink to miss an area bead up and can even block the ink flow from the nib so the one thing your surface needs to be is grease free If you use a pounce pouch and treat the surface before working the ink flow will be superior to an untreated surface Treat the surface you are working on after you have placed it in your working area otherwise the grease from your hands will leave a mark that you can t see but your pen will find To pounce your surface using your pounce bag or pouch tap it up and down as described above in a fairly even distribution over the surface area This action shakes a small amount of chalk from the pouch Having pounced the area use the now flattened base of the pouch to smooth all over the surface as if you were gently running an iron over the surface to smooth it out Please remember the pouch needs to be kept clean so tap it once more on the surface and put it away in its container Now this is where you need another draughting tool a drawing board brush a thin long soft haired brush for brushing off your work very useful for getting rid of the chalk and eraser bits but its needs to be very soft so as not to mark the work but strong enough to remove the debris They are not so easy to come by these days they ve fallen into disuse since cad machines took over the drawing office and inking surfaces have changed But you can find a suitably soft brush from a good hardware store or the like it needs to be soft bristled but strong failing that use a watercolour mop brush or make up brush Use the brush to gently sweep off the pounce and any other dust and bits that have arrived on the work surface bin the collected debris as they have done their job Give the surface one more final sweep and clean the brush Place a piece of paper to use as protection of the surface from your hands and finger tips Use this
