    • I like to add calligraphy to my painting and journaling sometimes, so I keep a nib/holder in one of my brush pots. Sometimes I use it with one of my regular calligraphy inks, and sometimes I use watercolors themselves on my nib. I’ve picked up lots of ideas about calligraphy and watercolor from #thepostmansknock blog.

    • Most of the time I use a fountain pen with Platinum Carbon Black ink. My TWSBI 580 is probably my favorite since it doesn’t dry out easily and has a nice enough XF nib. I’ve played around a little with dip nibs, and the same ink works fine. Haven’t messed around with watercolor on a dip nib, tho I know it’s possible.

    • one pen I dont see but I know you have is the elegant writer by speedball.. may do some loose sketching with that and activate the ink with water. Believe it or not.. Iam totally in love with very inexpensive glitter gel pen called Super Doodle gel pens. They activate with water and leave a lil bit of sparkle whenever applied and blended with a brush.

    • I mostly use the Pigma Micron with watercolor because it is so waterproof. The Tombow Fudenosuke isn’t bad The tip is slightly flexible and you can vary the line width in a single stroke. You have to let the ink dry for a while before rewetting or it will activate, and it can’t take as much water as the Micron. I like using Sakura gelly roll gel pens to ‘save’ paintings I’ve overworked. This might work for Thomas Blanchard’s shadow problem that he posted about. The gelly rolls add some shine back to the painting. I don’t know how lightfast they are, and in a journal they can leave color on the opposing page. But if a work is ruined because you can’t get more paint on the page – why not?
