This chapter is tentatively divided into two parts. In the first, we'll thoroughly explore inks, paints, markers, brushes, and sponges used in Gothic calligraphy work. We'll show clearly how each of these tools is used.
In the second part, we'll apply all our knowledge to create calligraphy on a canvas. Following along with the author's explanations and comments, you'll create your own piece, starting with an abstract multi-layered background and ending with the final composition. Emphasis will be placed on the artistic techniques that differentiate canvas creation from working on paper.
