Time to start a new batch of Jane Austen ink -- a two-month endeavor!!! . Jane’s favorite sister-in-law, Martha Lloyd, made small batches of this special ink just for her. Thanks to Martha’s detailed notes, we’re able to create results that look just like the ink from Jane’s beautiful manuscripts. . True to form, it’s half Stout Ale (in this case, Guinness) and half of lighter ale (Newcastle). I kept one for the cook — it’s perfect with tonight’s shepherd’s pie. Cheers! 😂😆🍺 . #foxandquills #foxandquillsink #foxandquillsjaneausten #janeausten #janeaustenink #calligraphy #irongall #calligraphyink #homemadeink #oakgall #penmanship #takeprideinpenmanship
If you are thinking of giving an Iron Gall ink a try you should try one the Platinum Classic inks. The colours are gorgeous and they shade like no tomorrow. The best thing about an Iron Gall ink is watching the colour go darker as the Iron Gall oxidises on the page :)
Love my new pen staff from @inkmethis. I Love their pens so much that I own 8 at last count and recently gave two as a gift to a family member who is wanting to get back into pointed pen. Ink is Iron Throne by @foxandquills and the nib is a vintage Gillott 604ef # calligraphy #calligraphynewbie #vintagesupplies #vintage #pointedpen #ironthrone #foxandquills #inkmethis #irongall ##Gillott #spencerian
Recent revival of an old obsession. Antique wax seal stamps. I also have a few fun contemporary stamps but nothing beats a old wax seal for me. Wax is from @nostalgicimpressionsinc99 #waxsealstamps #antiquewaxseals #calligraphy #calligraphynewbie #nibs #vintagesupplies #vintagenibs #irongall #vintagesupplies
I was told the bottle was a bit fragile. Considering that I have a daughter with VERY curious hands, I knew I had to take precautions. I remembered the samplers we had of @basimatsi.ph so I quickly found a way to finish it up (Not that difficult actually since its a fave). This is my end result. Hopefully, it will be safe from breaking in the hands of my curious calligra-wannabe-kiddo 😊 #irongall #calligrahack #calligraphyph
Aged a #brauserose nib in #irongall ink. #openinkstand mentioned this on one of her videos due to it being a bugger to start. Went in silver, came out looking nicer. I love the coppery look to it. #pointedpen #aged #handwriting #calligraphy #script
Iron-gall ink is being brewed. I’ve been reading about it and wondering what I’ve got at home that could approximate it. Well, I don’t have any oak galls to extract tannins from, but I do have green tea. And I’ve got ferrous sulfate tablets. So let’s see what happens. It’s been sitting for a while but I’ve decided to give it some heat. Don’t know how long it will take but it’s forming a dark black skin on the top which I hear is a good thing. Here are some test writings. These have been enhanced in Instagram so keep that in mind. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions please let me know! I’m kinda flying blind. #irongall #fountainpen #writing #ink

Learn more about Resident Artist Carla Fontecchio's dead beatles, handmade mold and deckles, and the children's book she's working on in our studios TONIGHT at our dual Artist-in-Residence talk with Lisa Miles (7-8:30 pm). Free! . “Over the course of my residency I am focusing on western methods of papermaking, editioning a series of watermarked drawing papers. These will be pulled from a mould and deckle that I constructed with customized dimensions for this project. . I am currently constructing a watermark to attach to my mould. I am designing it to resemble a small vessel or fountain as an acknowledgment of my family’s name, Fontecchio, which means “little fountain." . I will also be developing an iron gall ink recipe that is compatible with the fibers that I select for my paper. . While testing and adjusting my ink and paper to support one another, I will also focus on small scale production for a children’s book that will feature cut paper collages of specimens that will be imbedded into couched sheets, pressed and then dried," she says. . . . . . . . . #morganconservatory #handmadepaper #kozo #watermark #handpapermaking #papermaker #residentartist #artistresidency #cleveland #artisttalk #irongall

The other half of the harvest. When I was collecting these beneath the oak trees, picking them up off the ground one by one and putting them in a bag, a man asked me how I was going to cook them - “fried in butter?” Actually ... I’m going to use them for ink. . . . . . #bookarts #acorn #irongallink #irongall #tannin #acornink #inkmaker
I’ve known this interesting @foxandquills ink from @anintran ‘s demo. I’ve ordered 2 bottles and received them a while ago. I let them sit unopened on my desk as the packaging is so nice that I don’t want to tear it off. Finally, I first opened the “Red Wine batch#1 ”. It smells like a real wine 🍷. This is amazing ✨ The color is very nice. It’s a bit purple-grey and turns black when dry ❤️ 🖌 #kunniecalligraphy #calligraphy #copperplate #hunt101 #foxandquills #redwine #batch1 #irongall #anintranguidesheet #7mm #appfilter
Now this is a special ink!! Platinum Citrus Black before it has oxidised and gone dark. It is bright, I mean really bright!! It ends up oxidising to a lovely shade of mustard brown / grey. A definite keeper!

While Prince Rupert is out on his quest , his father is perplexed by his choice. "Monarchs don't marry for Love!" King Quillian declared to his wife Queen Patience "They marry for the good of the realm as we did!" The Queen smiled gently at her husband. "Yet we sought and found Love within our marriage. Rupert simply wants to find it before he weds!" She responded. The King had no comment as he preferred not to argue when his wife was right. Still having fun with gilding and watercolors.

Love the Iron Throne Iron Gall Ink from @foxandquills ! Goes down dark blue and turns black. Here I am using a freebie Soennecken nib from a terrific vendor in the Netherlands. Interesting double lined. The pen staff is from @thecuriousartisan and the paper is JNB Deluxe Linen Finish Paper item P99 from @johnnealbookseller . I am also posting books I have recently acquired via JNB and Amazon. #calligraphy #calligraphynewbie #pointedpen #vintagesupplies #vintagenibs #illumination #foxandquills #johnnealbooksellers #thecuriousartisan #irongall #ironthrone #inkmethis

Decisions, decisions!! How do you go about choosing which ink you are going to use next?
Here I am writing "frequency" again. This nib is interesting - it almost has a brush like quality to it. Nice and soft, but the snap back is a little slow. My writing looks completely different with this nib. Maybe it's cuz I can't really see where I'm writing or maybe it's an odd angle too.

I didn't think it was a good idea to pair flex nibs with Scabiosa but it was worth a try. The ink can't keep up when I really push the nib but with moderate flex it's actually okay!
