Uncial Calligraphy Basics : Pens for Uncial Calligraphy


The first thing you’ll need to get started
is a pen. And there are a lots of choices in pens. You can work with markers, which
have a broad nib, such as this one. And there are many different manufacturers of markers
that have many different sizes of nibs. But my favorite tool for calligraphy is a steel
nib pen. And here’s an example of one. This is a speed ball, and you write with the brass
part up top as you’re writing, and the ink rests in the inside of the pen. And in terms
of a professional tool that gives you the most crisp guidelines and beautiful thick
washes of color, I would recommend this sort of pen, a steel nib pin. And the C style gives
us the broad nib that we’re looking for. And, as with many things, when you start out it’s
good to use a large tool.
