Going to meet this new great niece tomorrow and was inspired to letter her name.

I’m trying to get back into doing Calligraphy more often. I used an old nib with a different ink and it blobs too easily. Ugh. Dr. Ph Martin’s Bleedproof white to the rescue! Also, messing around with watercolor.

I’m also working more with my brush lettering.

Calligraphy on a cup!

These photos show the steps I used to create this cup for my ‘secret pal’ in my Guild. I used Sharpie oil based pens in primary colors to stipple around the letters and inside the image of the pen. After it dried I carefully removed the paper and then baked the cup at 350 for 30-45 min.

For my niece’s wedding

BLOGThis is silver ink on a navy-blue envelope. I lettered it in a Spencerian ladies hand typestyle.

This envelope was lettered in a navy blue ink for a recent calligraphy project that I did. I developed this style last year for my daughter’s wedding and named it after her.
I am available to letter the envelopes for your invitation. My pricing is very reasonable and the turn-around time is approximately two weeks, depending on the amount of envelopes you need lettered. Please contact me at jherr54@aol.com for more information.
