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?
