Some Christmas letters with the text: "Let every day be Christmas. - Christmas is forever, not for just one day, for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf. The good you do for others is good you do yourself. - by Norman Wesley Brooks, 1976. .
Practice continous trying to get lightness and flow by my hand. X-hight 6,5 mm, with 2mm space between. These sheets has all a bit of structure, most linen, and I've to change nibs to a less catchy one. Then mixing a gold that come of the nib wich pure Pearlex didn't do for me... (Advise anyone?) Added some Schmincke Aqua Bronze Gold powders, water, gum arabic, extra Pearlex powder, shaking a lot. When I got a very god liquidicious gold, smooth writing with, "Murphy" showed up and I accidently tilted it out on the dinnertable of oak... Yeay...😜
NIB: Blanzy & Pour - Departementale No 2552, the gold is written with Leonardt - Hiro No 41.
INK: Vintage French Red Crystal School Ink with some Walnut Crystal Ink added to get it little darker. ..
