Just wondering if any of you are capable of writting in calligraphy. If so just post here for fun..or you can help me out in my lil dilemma. I'm not 1/2 bad at calligraphy after spending countless of hours doing it. However i have been using a cartridge fountain pen. I felt that i should advance, and I got myself a nice, real callighraphy pen, and a bottle of black calligraphy ink. exactly how to you dip your pen in? my attempts have been most unsucessful, as the ink bearly makes my name twice, thats only 10 letters long. I have a bunch of different nibs n such. but 1/2 of what it says it written in french, its like they don't want americans knowing what to do! according to the pamplet it says it should atleast make 1/4 of a page.
