Description

The Art of a Dip Pen

Calligraphy dip pens: Let your imagination run free with this set of Comic dip pens, a fun addition to your calligraphy or sketching work.

They feel balanced and incredible in the hand. Each handle is shaped from natural timber and formed for an easy hold. They are light and comfortable, perfect for quick sketches or many hours of dedicated calligraphy or journalling.

Like to change your grip? Hold the pen close to the nib for calligraphy work. Or take a looser grip further up the handle for sweeping strokes from the shoulder. Calligraphy dip pens are great for smooth transitions. All you need to do is adjust your hand angle and pressure. 

Nib size gives you primary control over line thickness. But change the angle and pressure of the nib against your working surface, and you can draw or write with even further variations.

Different line weights from the same nib are easy to achieve. And bring energy and modulation to your linework.

Create unique, lively and dynamic lines. Work as you please. Loose or very structured. There is nothing quite like the hand-touched quality that inking in this way gives.

In the box, you will receive:

  • Four timber handles
  • Two x four metal nibs 
  • 12 pieces in total

There are two nibs each in widths of extra small, small, medium and large. This set has all the variety you need to create a range of linework. You can interchange the nibs easily.

Urban sketchers

Urban sketchers, try incorporating dip pens with your fineliners and experiment with creating dynamic, organic strokes.  

  • Cross-hatching (parallel lines at right angles)
  • Hatching (long, parallel lines on an angle)
  • Scribbles
  • Small circles
  • Small crosses
  • Small dashes
  • Stippling (dots)

There is something incredibly satisfying about the process of drawing with raw ink. The feel of a nib gliding across a sheet of paper differs significantly from using a fine liner or pen. 

Let your imagination run wild and experiment 

Want to mix it up? Experiment and add some variation to your sketches. One of the best things about a dip pen is selecting the ink for your artwork. Acrylic, shellac and water-based inks are all options with opaque and translucent effects. 

An excellent minimal approach is to begin with grabbing one bottle of black Sumi ink. Perfect for simple, bold sketches, and it is water-based. 

The experience of drawing or writing with the Comic calligraphy dip pens is incredibly pleasurable. Possibilities open up, and you can let your imagination flow onto the page.

Hot tip

Drawing with dip pens can also effortlessly be combined with watercolour painting. Try your hand at adding some soft washes over your monochrome ink work. Pick the suitable ink, and it will stay put rather than blurring. 

Is calligraphy your thing? Or do you want to add ink embellishments to your journaling? Pair these dip pens with some blotting paper and a calligraphy pad or journal. 

Calligraphy dip pens are lightweight and minimal. Fit them into an art satchel, and you can easily take them anywhere you need.
