Blots - a Gold Mine for Calligraphy Pens, Paper & Ink

Contributors

Most of the knowledge that I have comes from talking to calligraphers who have tried different products and experimented with various techniques. This section of Blots website is dedicated to publishing some of that experience and skill that you have gained perhaps over many years. It will depend on you taking the time and trouble to write and send me good tips and ideas.

Calligraphy Ink Cartridges

Calligraphy is the art of decorative handwriting and means "beautiful writing" in Greek. It is a practice spanning thousands of years, and whilst it was once used largely for religious purposes, it is now used for a wide variety of reasons, from wedding invitations to corporate logo design. Anyone can create modern calligraphy. Even if you think your handwriting is horrible, it can look beautiful as long as you write with a calligraphy fountain pen or dip pen. 'Modern Calligraphy' ignores traditional rules and celebrates personality!

Writing inks are often difficult to find on the high street. Calligraphy ink cartridges are available in the marketplace, however, if you're looking for the best range and deals on great inks, it makes sense to take your search online. Many people shop at Blots Pen & Ink Supplies. This Internet retailer is very much a one stop shop for all of your calligraphy needs, stocking a vast range of calligraphy products from various leading brands, including Dr Ph Martin's, Daler Rowney and Higgins Inks.

Dropper

Dropper

There are times when you want to add a drop or two of water to gouache but don't have an eye dropper or pipette. One idea for a cheap alternative is to save a Jif lemon squeezer (after you've had your pancakes on Shrove Tuesday) and fill it with clean water. It will last for years and give you a cheap and useful dropper.

Calligraphy Fountain Pens

Blots Pen & Ink Supplies - calligraphy writing pens

It's impossible to think of a world without large printers and even bigger stacks of books with perfect, mathematically precise fonts. However, it is still possible to get the thrill of handwriting and with Blots Pen & Ink Supplies' calligraphy writing pens, you need not search anymore.

Handwriting has taken up a solely postcard pastime in recent times, and even those can be bought online.

Calligraphy came to its current definition from the Greek words 'kallos' and 'graphein'.

Separated they mean 'beauty' and 'write' respectively and together they became a person who writes beautifully.

The writing draws upon finer fonts that can easily be replicated with practice. From italic and gothic fonts, to Roman rustic styles - you can master this forgotten art form.

Our Pilot Parallel range is an interesting twist on standard black and blue calligraphy. With the ability to change the colour of the ink (the range of colours is vast) by touching it to the nib of another pen of a different colour, it produces unique effects.
