Gold is Good

Hands down, gold is the most requested ink color these days. She is the “it” girl. It is good to be gold.

I wanted to share with you my favorite gold ink – Dr. Ph. Martin’s Copperplate Gold. It is so fluid, so pretty, and dries lighting fast. It is just pretty wonderful.

Something to note about metallics – as you use them, the pretty pigment tends to sink to the bottom rather quickly. You’ll want to constantly give your ink a little stir or shake as you work with it to keep the color consistent. If you’re new to calligraphy, I recommend getting yourself a bottle of gold ink. It will reinvigorate your practicing regimen and make you happy!

  1. Love this–thank you for sharing! Can you recommend paper that won’t cause the ink to bleed? I am using Higgins black ink and I can’t write on any other paper besides the nearly transparent white paper I purchased for practicing. I would like to be able to write quotes to hang and to gift as well as even address envelopes. Thank you so much!
