While waiting for some client work to dry, I decided to give Ornamental Fraktur another go. Two and a half hours later the client's piece was ready for the next stage, but I was still playing!
iFriend Deborah asked me if Dr. Martin's Bleedproof White works in a parallel pen. I hadn't tried it before, but I didn't see why it wouldn't work. So today's Flourish Friday shows ProWhite (which is similar to Dr. Martin's) loaded into the barrel of a 1.5mm Pilot Parallel Pen (PPP). I bought a jar of ProWhite after hearing several calligraphers say they like it better than Dr. Martin's. I tried it, but just couldn't get the consistency right. I much prefer Dr. Martin's. I hate to waste anything, so I'm happy that the ProWhite works well in the PPP. I did keep a little jar of water nearby to dip the tip of the PPP in every once in awhile to keep the ProWhite flowing.
