My dip pen arrived today and I finally managed to plonk it into a bottle Violet W&N ink at around 11pm.
The nibs that came with it are all calligraphy round hand with squared tips, I had hoped there would be at least one with a nice point...Still, something new to play with and a nice big violet blob on my middle finger to mark the occasion.
I'm sure I can add nibs as I go...I'm gathering most nibs will fit most dip pens right?
Some of you have been asking where I get my watercolour sketchbooks from, so here are the all essential links:
Canson - Bright red with black corners
Saunders Waterford - Scroll down when you reach the website, mine is the one with the green spine.
Both are wonderful to use!
The Saunders Waterford has slightly thicker paper that is 'creamy white' whereas the Canson is a brighter white. The Canson has more pages and is ever so slightly larger than the SW.
