Behind the Scenes
My new demonstration video is live! In this video I calligraph the word “seven” — one in a series of 22 table number signs I was creating for a wedding in St. Louis. This extra-bold lettering style of mine — which uses double-thick downstrokes and touch-ups with a small paintbrush — is one I call Bunny. (See more of my styles here.) Enjoy!
For those of you learning calligraphy, tell me: is this sort of video helpful? Would you like me to make more? If so, are there any particular techniques you’d like me to share?
Supplies featured in this video:
- Brause EF66 nib
- Dr. Ph. Martin’s Pen-White Ink mixed with a little water
- A very tiny paintbrush
- Black bristol paper
