You can see everything you’ll need in this photo. The edding 1255 calligraphy pen comes in three stroke widths and five different colours. Choose your preferred colour and the stroke width you’re most comfortable working with. Print out the template.
Before you start, wipe the pieces of terracotta with a dry cloth to remove any dust.
Position the template and copy the motif using the calligraphy pen. Alternatively, you can use the pencil to first sketch out the motif. The calligraphy pen with the 2.0-mm nib is best for the narrow lettering and for the delicate leaves.
To ensure you achieve a stunning calligraphy effect, it’s important to always hold your pen in the same position. Make sure you don’t turn the pen when you write. If you’d like to find out more about expressive writing using edding calligraphy pens, we recommend our course for beginners.
