  1. Hi, thanks for the tips, just one question, I wanted to buy a brush pen but I couldn’t find tombow dual pen in my arena instead I found some kinda pen that was refillable with ink like Pantel ones, but the tip of the pen is plastic and a bit longer than the ones I saw in tutorials and videos, should I buy it? Or it may cause problems?

    1. Hey Mohammad! That’s a tough one. I can’t say whether the pen will be any good or not unless I’ve tried it personally. If the pen is affordable, though, I would personally love to buy it just to experiment with it and see how it feels. I wish I could be more helpful in your decision! Good luck and happy lettering 🙂

  2. The tip about not moving the fingers but the arm as a whole makes so much sense for calligraphy. I certainly went from 0/100 to 1/100 in my calligraphy just using that tip. It’s at least a start! Thank you for the article!

  3. Um, sorry for asking, but the free printable shown above isn’t available in the Fox Den Library. Could you please help me?

  5. thank you

    Very inspiring and doable

  6. I really like the Tombow Dual TIps, but for beginners, my favorites are actually the Tombow Fudes, especially the Tombow fude soft.

    1. I’m right there with you, Jadyn! The fudes are a lot smaller and feel a bit less intimidating, and they’ve quickly become my favorites for regular use! Tombow just can’t stop making good pens, can they? 🙂

  7. The Pentel Aquash with the ink in it: how long do you leave the ink in? I read somewhere that the ink will clog it if you leave it longer than a one time use. If you leave it longer how do you store it (horizontal or vertical)?

    PS: I love your blog!! Thank you for all your wonderful help and advice!

    1. Thanks so much, Larissa! And that’s a great question. I’m sure it depends wildly on the type of ink you put in the barrel, but I had that blue ink in the barrel of one of my brushes for more than a month before I finally emptied it. I still use that water brush all the time today! Granted, I watered down the ink a bit, so it wasn’t pure ink. I would say watery inks that are fine for fountain pens will probably be okay, but if you aren’t ready to replace the brush, I wouldn’t leave it too long. I hope that helps!

  8. This was super helpful! I love seeing all these amazing lettering styles and would love to be able to practise this myself, so thank you for sharing your tips and recommended tools 😀
