Stubwriter



I am having a blast lettering with  a bunch of different dip nib holders. This one was milled from a small piece of maple. A bit of an experiment to practice with a small 3.5" holder. Getting some real nice thicks and thins with the Speedball C4 nib.

  2. Thank you Jane. I appreciate the nice comment. When I try to letter this style with a normal size pen holder I totally fail at controlling the pen stroke. I am only having success with a larger diameter pen body. I eventually want to mill an oblique holder with a large diameter so I can practice pointed pen with ease.
