6:15 Lettering on Black with LynnAnn Babuk

We will be using a pointed pen and a variety of inks to make a sampler on black paper. It will be a handy reference guide to help you choose which inks work best for lettering on dark papers. We will start with cleaning and/or prepping your nib for use to ensure that it holds the ink properly and allows good flow. This will be an opportunity to help expand your options for future calligraphy endeavours. There will be plenty of long-time members who will be willing to help out in this process and get you up and writing. Join us for an evening of experimentation and fun!

Supplies Needed:

  • Pointed Pen nibs—preferably Nikko G
  • Straight of oblique shaft holder
  • 2 small containers for a nib rinse off
  • small cloth for cleaning your nibs
  • Pen and notebook for writing notes
  • Any inks you have: Sumi, Dr. Martin’s Bleedproof white, gouache, acrylics, Finetec.
