How to Master the Calligraphy Style of Writing : How to Improve Calligraphy Designs


Joanna Joseph for Expert Village. I use graph
paper in the planning stages. Every alphabet, it’s helpful because it’s lines, and every
alphabet has its own ratio of black and white in the letter. So, say I was going to do an
italic letter. It’s four to four and a half nibwits high, the letters are. So, one, two,
three, four, five, there’s five. So four and half or four should be about here. There’s
that letter “a”. Okay, we’re writing “easy does it,? I can tell my pen’s getting a little
dry. Refill. I love the sound of the pen on the paper. You can try it in a different alphabet and
that alphabet is called Carolingian. It was established in the time of Charlemagne. This one’s got very high ascenders. Short,
squatty little lowercase letters, but tall ascenders. They call them ascenders and descenders.

  3. it is very nice i could do in arabic letters, but i i'm asking how to do it in english letters?!! thanks

  4. What kind of paper can you use this on? I mean I only have regular printer paper. Is there a thicker stronger paper that I will need to buy? Obviously I'm new to this and I'm very interested. 🙂 It's so beautiful.
