“Brownie & Furf” — winners of my #namelottery over at @calligraphyhowto
I am in LOVE with that B!
Notice the rocking motion I use with this ruling pen–that’s what gives thicks and thins. On a thin upstroke, I literally twist the pen, by pushing my thumb toward my pinkie (try it, to understand what I’m talking about). This movement makes writing with a ruling pen fairly natural, though depending on what kind of ruling pen you have, your results may vary. Experiment and play–that’s always the best prescription. ?
Ink: J. Herbin Encre Violette Pensée **************
Note: for the next name lottery, the entry rules have changed. Instead of writing the winner’s name, I will write the winner’s FRIEND’s name. ************** In other words, you are entering for someone else, so who do you want to gift with their name in calligraphy?
Here’s how to enter (be sure to follow BOTH steps): 1. Follow @calligraphyhowto on Instagram.
2. Leave a comment on my most recent name post at @calligraphyhowto on Instagram—INCLUDING the name you want calligraphed (not your own), AND tag one or more Instagram friends.
