One of the most asked questions those who are new to calligraphy ask is—Where do I start?…what tools do I buy? Well if it’s script calligraphy you’re interested in the answer is simple. Grab a pencil!. I am a big advocate of starting simple. So , I recommend pencil before nib and foundation (letterforms) before flourishing.
The Pencil Advantage:
Free tool (well..almost..there’s probably one laying around the house)
Mistakes can be erased easily
Great for monoline letterforms
