Hello kittens! I’m back today with another calligraphy post. Check out my other post on my supplies here, then come on back to get the full resources list on this post (and a free Calligraphy 101 PDF at the end).
When beginning my journey into calligraphy over a year ago it was more difficult to find resources online, but with calligraphy becoming more and more popular, it is easier to find blog posts with tips + tricks, resource links, etc. And today, I am sharing my own list with you! Be warned: It’s a doosey of a list!
GOUACHE: Dick Blick
WATERCOLOR: Michaels Craft Store: beginner set
FINETEC: Paper Ink Arts
STORAGE: Paper Ink Arts: Dinky Dips
GLASS VIALS: Specialty Bottle: vials to hold nibs
GLASS BOTTLES: Specialty Bottle: bottles for ink
PENCIL // RULER // PAINT BRUSHES
B CARDS: Paper Source
RESOURCES + LESSONS
My FREE PDF booklet that I made! It started as a Christmas gift and turned into a full on booklet I created in InDesign. Once I was done with it I thought I would share it with you all for freeeeee!
This PDF booklet includes: Welcome page, Table of Contents, Beginners Supply List (pictured below), How To’s, Words to practice, Resources and more! It’s like a condensed version of the long list in this post. :)
If you would like to download it, I have 3 different ways:
- Easiest for phones because it’s single pages: CLICK HERE
- Double pages: CLICK HERE
- If you want to make a booklet, just print front and back (and go into layout settings and select short-edge binding, that way it will make sure everything is right side up on both sides): CLICK HERE
Also, here is my rewards link to Paper Ink Arts if you want to help a girl out. ;)
Whew, you make it thru all the way? Find anything helpful? I sure hope so! Now I am off to work on my calligraphy skills so that I can show you what you can make with all your new knowledge.
Peace + love, Jaclyn
