Calligraphy Season

Looks like the calligraphy season has started. Have spent hours in the workshop making wooden penholders for orders. Thankfully have a plentiful supply of Blots Iron Gall ink as I recently made new supplies for a wholesale order. Must make more effort to promote Iron Gall ink for ink and wash drawing as it produces some remarkable results including what appears to be a sepia tint. I suspect that actually it is undissolved iron that is going rusty!
A beautifully warm blue black with warm sepia tones – tasty!!
