Weekend Project: practice, practice, practice!

Modern calligraphy is very popular and so is writing on anything to make it personalized and custom!  The great thing about modern calligraphy is that it is more forgiving than traditional calligraphy and it's fairly easy to pick up and learn how to do it.  However, it does take practice.  It's amazing how a little bit of practice can quickly improve your writing in this new style.  One other trick, is save what you write so that you can see how you are improving and sometimes the next day when you go back and look at it, it might not be so bad!  I do that trick with cards as well.  We sell lots of modern calligraphy products in our store.  However, we did get in a new metallic watercolor set from Gansai Tambi that is amazing!  You simply wet the ink and then paint the ink onto your pointed calligraphy pen or you can also use a detailed brush.  The brush pen is how I did the samples below.
