Bring your pens. These techniques will work with all of them, BUT some are much better than others. My favourite is the Horizon folded flat pen, 5/16″ size from Paper and Ink Arts (1/4” & 3/8” are also good. Don’t go bigger than that). Old Coits and Hiro folded pens are similar.
The big sizes of Parallel Pens are okay, but you must have ink to dip in. The ink that flows through the pen is not wet enough. Brause, Tape, etc. are good, Automatics are also okay, but both Automatics and Parallels have sharp corners that are not as friendly to some of these techniques as the folded flat pens like the Horizons. If you are ordering from Paper and Ink, be sure to specify FLAT folded Horizons, because they have Horizon Folded RULING style pens as well.
Paper with tooth or a little bit of texture.
There will be a $20-25.00 fee for the work book that goes along with this class.
