·Calligraphy pens from start to finish
Last updated 3 years ago
Cheryl's double sided Purple Heart straight holder. A perfect size at 5" long with 3/8" diameter grip section. Both nib inserts fit into epoxied brass tubes to safeguard wood fibers from moisture and provide ease of repair should the insert need replacing. The finish is multiple layer of micro polished acrylic buffed with carnauba wax.
My recent acquisition of double dyed stabilized wood. I recently discovered stabilized wood after several attempts to color turned pens with Transtint dyes and transparent acrylic paints. I could not get the color depth I was hoping for with surface dyes. The stabilized double dyed boxed elder burl wood blanks are the answer for my color and texture quest.
