Hi Everyone


Recommended Posts

I just recently started using a Cross Bailey for all my writing and I am LOVING IT! I have always hated how ball point pens have that one part that never seems to write or they just never seem to write at all. I am starting to look at various inks and can tell I am going to have a big collection.


I'm just wondering what pens are better for writing in copperplate?

Hi and welcome to FPN



Copperplate is a special art. Best go to the Penmanship subforum.


You will need a very flexible nib for copperplating, and these are hard to find at decent prices these days in fountain pens, all in old vintage pens, or you have to revert to dip pens with special nibs.


Enjoy the forum

Welcome !


Seems to me that Copperplate calls for a flexible nib, and an ink/paper combination that promotes a good

bit of shading. I have no such skill, but I have seen some humbling examples from our FPN members.


Write with joy.
