Wed Letter Day

Week 5. Illuminated "S". Need to work on my white work.
Week 6. Time to break out of the comfort zone with this bamboo "r". Walnut ink, Arches Text Wove.
What are you working on?


  1. You are SO creative! What is walnut ink?

    What am I working on? Staying afloat, mostly.

  2. The walnut ink I use has nothing to do with real walnuts and is actually made from peat. It comes in a crystallized form which you reconstitute with water. It has a very lovely walnut brown shade. It makes a very nice practice ink because you can see where strokes overlap.

    As to staying afloat? I'm doing that dance to.

  3. Way cool. I love the bamboo letter.

    And the S looks like Supermom!

    I'm editing and rewriting. :)

  4. I love the R. The tan tree trunk gets to me.

  5. I love the bamboo r, how clever! And I thought the S would look good on Super CJ's cape.
