  •   ptownk Lovely! What nib and pen are you using to get sych fine line? And do you have any problems with the ink flow? I love using a fountain pen for calligraphy practice but it doesn't always flow well... 2d
  •   leighpod @opiumtwin you can also try Diamine Rustic Brown. :) 2d
  •   leighpod @ptownk check out the modified Namiki Falcon by Mottishaw at nibs.com. 2d
  •   ptownk Thx @leighpod! I will check that out! So far I've just tried to modify a noodles ahab with a brause rose nib. Ink flow is not consistent yet though. 2d
  •   clmautz Is that a cardinal darkness Ahab? 22h
  •   leighpod @clmautz no, it is a Romillo with a Mottishawed nib! :) 21h
  •   clmautz Nice. I'll have to Google and see if they are available in the U.S. 20h
  •   leighpod @clmautz check out the modified Namiki Falcon by Mottishaw at nibs.com 20h

  •   withoutink Awesome. 5d
  •   hchoo Work bigger! So hard to do though ;___; 5d
  •   thefozzybook Loooove 5d
  •   subgirl Weren't you one of the people with the metal folded pen? Oh it was @kataish too ... gahh too many amazing artists on my IG with too much fun stuff. If you don't have/have made one, I definitely recommend making (or buying) one (pop can pen/folded pen) for bigass flowy loose yumminess. I need to get mine out again! 5d
  •   leighpod @subgirl I got a folded pen from John Neal ages ago and still use it! :D 5d
  •   klpeabody Your coffee mugs have become a character in your photos. :) 4d

leighpod New way of gripping pen = shaky all over. Learning is painful, but necessary. 6d
  •   mycoffeepot @leighpod love it. Looks dangerous 5d
  •   subgirl is the reservoir a spiral of wire? How does this wooooork? It's gotta be better than masking tape, which I still can't figure out! >.< I am such a noob at pointed pen anything but so inspired. You & @gentian_o (and a much longer list) do me in! 5d
  •   leighpod @subgirl I just made it out of a paper clip with roundnose pliers. @gentian_o likes masking tape better, I think! 5d
  •   subgirl Ahhh thank you, SO is doing EE stuff so he has a LOT of wire hanging around that I like to play with, so this intrigued me. Researching on FPN but most of the external links and images for explanations are dead (or don't work on mobile). I just might go dig out my jewellery supplies tomorrow. Need to work on an MTN charm, too. 5d
  •   subgirl FYI, the video everyone linked to in their posts is private now. :c Super bummed! But I think I can do it from pics. We'll see tomorrow! 5d
  •   gentian_o @leighpod @subgirl yeah! I think the spiral is cool but works better with certain nibs. Masking tape, you can stick on any nib. 4d
  •   gentian_o @subgirl it's easy to make, you just coil a piece of wire (you can use a skewer to wrap the wire around if it makes it easier) leave the front of the wire with a bit of a point in each side. Then, you stick one piece of the wire into the holder, and the other end has to touch the nib. 4d
  •   gentian_o @subgirl it's actually a really old technique. I'll try to find the photo of it I did a while ago and the page on the IAMPETH website. 4d

  •   uniqueobliques Oh man, two of my favorite things...coffee and inspiration ala LeighArt! 1w
  •   leighpod @uniqueobliques the coffee is most needed at the moment... 1w
  •   klpeabody Love the mug 1w
  •   leighpod @klpeabody a friend made it. Stripes of clay are taken off vertically, then the piece is turned on the wheel so that the stripes "twist". So cool. 1w
  •   klpeabody How special that it came from a friend. :) the technique is fascinating. I have a few pottery items, and love them all because they feel so natural; so organic. As if they sprouted out of the ground just as they are. 1w
