A few months ago, i began doing calligraphy. I bought my instruments, and started working. It's amazing and very catchy. One of the instruments I bought is a Mitchell Copperplate elbow dip nib, which I ordered from UK. I was very enthusiastic to test it, and when I did, I was terribly disappointed. At first, I though the nib was broken or something. After a few days of practice, I managed to come up with this. Mitchell Copperplate elbow nib, green liquid watercolor, 180 gsm colored paper.
The nib works perfectly. Practice every day, know your tools.
