Calligraphy Videos


I’m having a fun with making calligraphy videos. I still need to work on exposure, intro and sound; but I’m excited about an opportunity to learn something new.

I’ll be posting a lot more calligraphy videos on my youtube channel and instagram in the future.

      I have been wanting to learn Calligraphy for a while. I do have the nibs, and the ink. I have the nibs that you dip in the ink. It is beautiful.

      I have ALWAYS wondered what writing calligraphy would look like. That was fantastic. Thanks!

      Do you have any tips for keeping the pen inked for longer? I can’t seem to write more than four letters without having to dip in for more ink. Also, when I downstroke just the outline of the downstroke inks, not the inside after the first two letters. Maybe you can help guide me in the right direction?

      Thanks in advance!

        It all depends upon the type of ink, nib and style of lettering you’re using. If you have a broad downstroke or a heavy hand, you’ll be dipping frequently. Dipping every 2 letters can be pretty normal if you’ve got a heavier style.
