Looking to take your calligraphy one step further? Consider our Intermediate Guide Add-on. This is a sample guide only that includes:
– Details on letter consistency
– Information on letter connections
– Two flourished alphabets
– Tracing pad with one of the flourished alphabets – each letter upper & lower case on its own page
– A full set of flourishing examples (lower case letters, words & ornamental flourishing)
– A few notes on Modern Calligraphy & Mixing Inks
For additional guidance, we offer a Letter Connections Tracing Pad as an add-on option when purchasing the full Intermediate Guide. This is a second tracing pad in addition to the flourished alphabet pad and includes a series of connections/words that correlate with the study included in the Intermediate Guide.
**Please note this is a guide only with samples of intermediate work. It does not include supplies or special instructions on how to get started with calligraphy.**
**To close the lids on the jars included, you turn the lid until you feel it click tightly — then you stop. If you continue to turn, applying more pressure, it can loosen. If this happens, just turn it further until you feel it click tight again. When traveling with ink, we always recommend double zip-loc bagging your ink.**
Below are additional, optional add-ons that can be purchased along with your Calligraphy Starter Kit Lite to continue in your practice & learning.
