Calligraphy Pens can be used for anything from writing invites to creating stunning artwork. The Artline on the desk today has a 2.0mm chisel tip with water-based pigment ink that is fast drying, waterproof & acid-free.
The Artline Calligraphy Pen is also available with 1.0, 2.0, 3.0 & 4.0mm nibs in a choice of black, blue, red & sepia ink. They make the perfect companion for those wanting to create illustrations or decorative works of art. Calligraphy pens are designed to produce varying line widths depending on the way the pen is held, this is not something that comes naturally to me & my attempts did nothing for my writing. My creative streak isn’t unleashed in the form of handwriting so I had to call on somebody with more flair to complete the writing example below.
The Artline Calligraphy Pens have a square cut tip made of polyester fiber & a protective metal ring protects the point. At the other end of the pen & the question of posting the cap, I didn’t have a positive experience. Maybe experienced calligraphers will tell me it doesn’t matter? It’s just something I always do to save losing them!
Whilst fiber tipped calligraphy pens are apparently (I can’t vouch for this you understand) much easier to hone the craft with than say a fountain pen, they will still not provide a miraculous solution to someone with poor handwriting. But all is not lost as we have a guide on creating fake calligraphy. If on the other hand, you want to take time out to learn how to create a variety of lettering & fancy penmanship then Artline Calligraphy pens may offer some assistance.
