I'm completely new, and know nothing about all of this. My introduction is in that sub-forum.
Started all this just a few weeks ago....and just reading/practicing when not working, etc
So far, I love it....cool stuff.
The Pilot parallel pens 1.8/2.4 is what am using now.
I had some Speedball India Ink from my woodshop, and got out some nibs, etc from Amazon; I was so disappointed w how grey the black ink was...
So, I have some Sumi ink, and one other and Nikko G nibs coming from Amazon
What ink do you all use that is darkest? For a dip pen....I have no fountain pen.
Is there a relatively cheap copy paper that will not bleed (I bought some 28lb copy paper from WM just now)?
I'm trying to get my co-worker to get into action w her calligraphy gift set so we can critique each other's work.
Thank you in advance,
