I'm hoping you knowledgable knotties can help me out. I'm struggling to get a smooth & consistent ink line from my calligraphy pen on our envelopes. The slower I write, the better it gets, but it's still not working quite right. Everything looks fine on regular printer paper, just not on the actual envelopes.
I'm using a $15 Manuscript Classic Calligraphy set from Michaels, along with their accompanying inks. Currently using a 1.6mm nib. The paper is Crane Lettra 110# which is 100% cotton.
Any suggestions? Maybe I should just buy a cheap "calligraphy" marker? Or does this require a nicer pen?
Thanks in advance...
