July 2ND - I heard on the calligrapher's grapevine that you could (gently and carefully) file a 1.MM Pilot Parallel Pen down to MM - there by getting the rough equivalent of a no 4 nib. Up for a challenge me! So I set to work (gently and carefully) with some black emery paper. I did get there eventually - took me ages. Now I have a smaller nib to experiment with.
I am going to practise with some verses on the new multi-fold A card that I like.
I have been catching up with my cards stock and it seems ages since I did a 'real' calligraphy text and am really looking forward to settling to longer bits of work.
