Calligraphy Tips for Beginners

Even if you don’t have years of calligraphy training, learning to write with a calligraphers pointed pen can give regular handwriting a look that you just can’t get with a pen. It comes from the ability of the pen to go from hairline thin to thick just by the pressure you put on the nib. If you can’t afford a calligrapher it’s worth it to invest in these very cheap tools (it comes out to around $10) to have on hand so even normal handwriting has a special look. Plus you can get the most gorgeous ink colors! I give some basic pointers on this Project Wedding tutorial.

    Great tips…I tried a marker calligrapher to attempt the great look at Neither Snow. It was too big, even the smaller side. I think an calligraphy pen is the answer. Thanks!

    I am inspired! My handwriting, or hand'printing' as the case may be, has never been that great. Perhaps with this I'll finally be able to write beautifully!
