Zig Marker Italic Guide Sheets

We had our first Italic Calligraphy workshop last Saturday at The Workroom. I promised the class that I would share some guide sheets here at the blog. This is what I use when I practice with a Zig Marker that has a 2 mm and 3.5 mm edge.

Practicing Italic

When I measured the nib width of the marker it was 0.25 mm off, so the 2 mm edge is actually 1.75 mm and the 3.5 mm is actually 3.25 mm.

We recommend using a good quality sheet of paper so that there is a reduced chance of feathering. I usually print on A4 sheets of paper that are around 140 gsm. The paper on the photo is a light grey Fabriano purchased from Art Friend.

Please feel free to share this. Kindly link to this post and not to the files themselves.
