I have been busy behind the scenes here over the last few months getting my new website up and running and sourcing some new products for my online shop.
It can be quite overwhelming when you are new to calligraphy to know which inks, penholders, inks and paper to buy. I have done the hard work for you and sourced my very favourite calligraphy tools from around the globe. They are all used by me on a daily basis and all work well together.
Bring a little colour to your pen pots with these colourful Moblique penholders form Luis Creations all the way from Australia. They come in 8 fabulous colours, from mouth watering pastels to shiny metallics. Choose from Dead Sea Clay, Mint Leaf, English Rose, Purple Sand, Copper Sunrise, Golden Sunshine, Moonlight Shadow and Silver Storm.
Not only do they come in the most fabulous colours but they are also incredibly versatile. You can easily remove the flange to turn your penholder from an oblique to a straight penholder and you can also store up to two Nikko G nibs inside the chamber which makes it super handy when you are on the move!
And the fun doesn’t stop there! You can mix and match the colours to create your very own versions!
Of course they don’t just have to look good they have to work for you too! I have been testing the penholders and am happy to say that I am finding them really lovely to use. I do have an ever growing collection of penholders from cheap and cheerful to super expensive. The Moblique penholder is a great entry level penholder and light and comfortable to hold.
So what are you waiting for? Why not grab one (or two)? You can even match them to the ink you’re using! Find them in my online shop together with all your other essential modern calligraphy supplies.
Thank you for taking the time to read my journal. I am planning to add some tips and tricks to help you with your calligraphy in the coming months so pop back again soon.
I joined Judy's group workshop at the Langham hotel and loved every moment of it. The set up was beautifully done with our own personalised place setting laid out with all the tools required for the session. Judy helped us all individually, giving time and assistance when needed as well as showing us things as a group. The whole class was fantastics.
