Easy Watercolor Calligraphy Technique
Using the paintbrush, Lindsey paints the watercolor onto the back of the nib of the calligraphy pen, using the edge of the nib to get the watercolor off the brush. Paint the nib up to the vent hole in the middle, then carefully check that the paint won’t drip when the pen is held vertically. If you think it will drip, hold the nib over the water container and give one quick shake to get rid of the excess. The paint will create blobs on the paper if there’s too much paint on the nib. Unlike the photo above, we recommend adding paint over some surface other than your working canvas. That way, you won’t spill paint onto your canvas.
