Calligraphy Ink

I am in love with calligraphy; I think it is absolutely gorgeous. Many many years ago, my sister bought the starter pack for calligraphy from the newsagency and recently I discovered it in our stationery cupboard. A calligraphy dip pen is something I have always wanted to master and judging from my poor attempts earlier today, it is still something I need to improve on. The photo below illustrates my less than stellar attempt - blotting and writing in a manner that was not appropriate for the size of my nib. It is a quote from my favourite TV show and is hardly legible.


I do believe that I need a finer nib - which I shall purchase in due course- and an eye dropper for greater precision when putting in the ink.
