The task of writing words using Blackletter required more experimentation with different tools. I tried using flat brushes, fountain pens, dip pens with various nibs, reed pens and marker pens. Each tool gave me a different quality of line however I found it really difficult to achieve a consistant line with the tools that required me to repeatedly dip the nib into a pot of ink. I discovered the parallel pen (see right, red line) and for me this tool was the easiest to use. It gave a clean, consistant line that allowed me to form the letters effectively, without running out of ink halfway through a stroke. Writing calligraphy is an art form that requires years of practice. I only had a few weeks remaining of the project and I needed a tool that would give me the scope to create lettering with my limited experience of writing calligraphy. The other tools still have their uses but not for this particular task.
