Fountain Pen Inks Adored At Rochester Cathedral Workshop!



Rate Topic 0

Recommended Posts

Just some of beautiful illuminated 'R's created for the Illuminating Beasts project at Rochester Cathedral.

 

With 68 students (ranging from ages 6 to 82 years and some with special needs), 12 small bottles of various coloured Diamine fountain pen inks, 16 dip pens, 16 brushes and some cartridge paper over 6 workshops of 2.5 hours each - What do you think? Costwise it was the best value workshop the cathedral have run to-date with 100% satisfaction score on the evaluation!

 

The most frequent comments were:
'I have never used fountain pen inks in this way before'
'I never knew there so many colours available in fountain pen inks'
'The bleach effect was awesome!'

I don't think I need to ram the point home any further!

This is beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Thanks. I have a theory that the one way to gain interest in handwriting is by introducing people to the possibilities of fountain pen ink. I am hoping that this helps to demonstrate that those possibilities are many indeed. Basically, the above illustrations could only have been achieved using this unique medium. Fountain pens inks are more vivid and diverse than watercolours, felt pens and art inks.
