Houston Calligrapher - Hunt for the perfect bronze Ink

I've been pretty swamped and haven't posted the last few jobs....must get better about that.   This project is for a wedding in NYC.  This couple opted for bronze ink in Ornate Roundhand on Crane lettra paper.  I love bronze.  Who doesn't love bronze?  I'm still on the hunt for the best bronze ink that has a minimal hassle factor, flows well and looks beautiful.  Today, I'm using Fine-Tec pearl color disks. They are beautiful once you dilute the disk down, but the hassle factor is a little high for me especially when you consider that you still have to mix after each envelope/line as with most metallics (that's why so many calligraphers charge extra for metallics).  I may have to return to "creating" my bronze (secret recipe).  We'll see.  These are beautiful though, aren't they?

Slinging Ink® of Bella Grafia Calligraphy is a Houston Based calligraphy firm that was established on the idea that sometimes the vintage way of creating art is the best. Hand written calligraphy is the most elegant form of communication and an event focused on the art of others deserves nothing less.  As a Houston calligrapher & engraver, I believe in doing it beautifully or not at all.
