wedding gift commission

by gl. at 11:53 pm

argh! i spent all day working on the layout & ink selection for a wedding gift commission, even going so far as to blend my own gold from a combination of other golds, only to find that all my green inks bleed on the final paper i'm going to use. it makes the letters fuzzier than they ought to be.

i'm going to try gouache for the first time tomorrow, but i'm not hopeful.

mhcc calligraphy: class 9

created a pangram book, gold leaf. the next class is the last one.

i broke a nib in frustration while trying to get ink to come out before i decided to check the ink. lesson learned: this blend of cast-off inks will finally be tossed.
