I love trying things I’ve never done before, so today it’s time for another art challenge. I am going to try my hand at using a dip pen.

I’ve never used one, at least not with proper ink. I’ve used some old ones with acrylic paint and watercolour but no to any extent.

Both the ink and the pens I’m using in this video are Speedball, primarily because they were cheap.

While doing the testing and drawing, I also touched on why I don’t like the word ‘humble’ and talk about the nibs I’m using. I did make a mess but not as much of a mess as I thought I would 😀

Supplies I used:

Do you have any ideas for more art challenges?

I’m not running out. I think I have about 50 or so that I’ve written down on a list of planned challenges. But I want to hear what you want to see.

Will you support me on Patreon?

I would love it if you went and checked out my Patreon I recently re-did the tiers that are available and I really want your opinion on those. If you support me there, every dollar will make a difference and it starts at $1 a month.
