  1. Hello everyone, I was wondering what is a better tool for drawing, a fountain pen or a dip pen. Let me first tell you what I think: In the case of a dip pens, 1. I can use inks like sumi, india ink or even acrylic inks which cannot be used in fountain pens and thus, a greater variety of ink can be used. 2. It gives a greater line variation. 3. You have to dip your nib again and again after few strokes of line. Now this is off course inconvenient but I also think that this process teaches us to be more patient. 4. You need a greater skill to handle d

    Hello from Pennsylvania

    Hi! I've been drawing with fountain pens for a few years now! I have drawn with a Pilot Prera almost everyday since I got it in Japan in 2017. This morning I discovered it was missing. It lived a very good life, I haven't lost all hope that it will turn up. I hope it does, I love that pen and have drawn countless things with it. Its always with me. I must push on however, i'm tackling a white whale drawing and I figured what better to draw with than my grail pen. I have a Montegrappa Reminiscence that's been sitting unused for almost a year, I polish it and it has pen cleaner and a converter
  3. Hi all, I'm still very new to fountain pens and am looking to possibly add something specific to my collection. I have a couple Jinhaos, a couple TWSBI Ecos, an Al-Star, etc., and I love them dearly. However, I'm looking to upgrade a little bit (possibly a lot bit!) in terms of a flex pen for drawing and illustration. I am an illustrator both by passion and by trade, and I do a little of everything: graphic design, comics and graphic novels, pen-and-ink illustrations, watercolor painting, and colored pencil pieces. My first and main love, though, is pen and ink. I have used techpens (e
  4. Hello, I am an artist who has recently moved away from India ink and rapidograph/technical pens (4x0) to UEF platinum 3776 fountain pens and dye based fountain pen ink. My style is drawing/inking on top of watercolors. As such fountain pen ink tends to spread and I lose my thin line. I’ve found I can apply spray workable fixative to the watercolor, let it dry then ink with fountain pens and fountain pen ink over it with great success. I use extremely light pressure. My question. Am I doing damage or harm to the nib? Thanks, Carol

    Calligraphy And

    I am opening this topic in this forum, because the Montblanc forum is one of my favorites on this network, but not only. In fact, I present an exercise, which was born to give my ideas a calligraphic shape, made with two of my Meisterstück 149, the recent Calligraphy with its beautiful flexible nib and another 149 with BB nib, a pen from 1984. And on the same sheet I also present a drawing, made with the Calligraphy pen, which engages in a self-portrait and a portrait of her sister with the double bold nib. Very Montblanc, as you can see ... An anecdote about the realization of this oper

  17. There are plenty of reviews about the Desiderata out there, but most of them are from the POV of a copperplate calligrapher, which is this pen's intended use. There are few reviews that focus on drawing, which is a shame, because I think this is a nice, and also an overlooked art tool. In case you haven't heard, these are made by hand by a fine fellow named Pierre Miller in Chicago, and they take disposable Zebra G manga dip nibs. I won't re-iterate the information already available on Pierre's site, but instead I'll dive right into the stuff about drawing, that isn't widely available. Below

    The Boston Globe recently interviewed Crane & Co. creative director John Segal. http://postscript.crane.com/paper-habits-boston-globe/http://postscript.crane.com/paper-habits-boston-globe/ Reminds me of visiting my Uncle John's print shop as a kid. Happy reading and writing.
  19. Hi there! After more than one year of intense usage (mainly for drawing) of my Lamy Safari(s) I am thinking about buying a "next-level" fountain pen. In terms of performance do you think it is worth spending money on a better one (gold nib, better construction, etc.)? Is there significant difference between a budget and an expensive pen? (My budget is not that fixed, I can be persuaded - but let's say $150 is the ceiling.) What I've observed with my Safari is that 1) the feed sometimes does not give enough ink when drawing really fast sketches (maybe it is just the ink? used only Lamy and Di

  21. Any recommendations for a small sketchbook for drawing with fountain pens? I like A6 (or B6), since it's easily transportable, and probably wire bound. I realised I have no idea what to look for when buying art paper. There are papers for oil, acrylic, watercolour, bristol board... the list is seemingly endless and often don't work with pen and ink. Even a Clairefontaine sketchbook I bought feathers badly. In theory I might dabble in watercolours to try some line and wash, but my main priority is smooth-ish paper, white or light cream, that works brilliantly with fountain pen (usually Plat
  22. (( Please feel free to guide me to a different post if necessary, I'm an FPN forum newbie C': )) So here's my dilemma, I have no way of trying any of the aforementioned pens. So I hope based on my preferences you guys can guide me to what you think would be best for me. I currently own only two pens, a Lamy Safari and a Pilot Metropolitan. I love how lightweight the lamy is, but definitely prefer that gelpen-like feel the metropolitan provides as well as the size, the lamy sometimes feels like a large pen in my hand regardless of the weight, and took a bit of getting used to. I use both pe

  24. So, Im new to fountain pens, and I was was wondering what would be a good fountain pen for drawing and sketching? I have seen in other websites that for someone new to this the lamy safari and pilot metro are kind of the way to go, but i really dont like these all that much. I dont want a pen exclusively for drawing, but I am gonna use it for that a lot. My budget would be around $100 but the price varies here in my country with some pens.
