I have been dreaming about elegant handwriting since I was a little girl. Just this year I finally felt encouraged by seeing many amazing calligraphers try it myself. I feel like as I get older, my artistic side is opening up to all directions, and I enjoy this journey. The art of calligraphy is simply beautiful. It’s not necessarily easy but with practice it can be perfected.
I was contacted by Kiriath from I LIKE THAT DIY few weeks ago. She launched her new kit, called the MODERN CALLIGRAPHY STARTER KIT and she asked me to try, and I happily did.
Well, if you are ready to learn beautiful calligraphy, this kit is for you!
The kit includes:
- a straight and oblique pen holder
- 2 nibs ( a Zebra G and a Leonardt Principal fine nib)
- Sumi ink
- downloadable Calligraphy booklet
To start on your calligraphy journey, you don’t need more than what this kit includes.
I practice calligraphy whenever my time allows me. I wish I could practice more, though because you know, practice makes perfect!
For warm up I generally practice basic up and down strokes. Depending on the how much pressure you use you will get various thickness on your lines. I make my lines without pressure going up and with pressure going down. The downloadable booklet will explain you the basics and will have practice sheets as well.
I also like to practice the alphabet. I prefer the oblique pen over the straight pen, but it could be personal preference. Many calligrapher like the straight pen. The kit has both pens so you will have the option to see and feel both pens and see which fits your hands the best. The Zebra G nib is firm and perfect for beginners.
Calligraphy is such beautiful art. I love to hand letter my envelopes to friends and family. It gives a special touch to gifts.
I hope you got encouraged, too, to start on your calligraphy journey!
