Hello everyone, this is Clement here, and I am very honored to be invited as a guest writer for OFP! I am here to start a series of posts on Chinese Pen Calligraphy. It is one of the interesting ways to use a fountain pen, yet has not been widely explored, at least in the English-speaking world. Ever since I started posting on the Singapore Fountain Pens Lovers Facebook group back in 2014, many questions came to me on what pen/nib I used to obtain the effects that were shown in the writings. To be honest, I never really had a clear idea, and was experimenting with many different things (flex nibs, fude nibs, naginata nibs, ……) but I did not really have a clear idea also. Currently, after 3 to 4 years of testing and experimentation, I might have a better idea to justify a formal post on this matter. However, do note that this is what is written for now only. Maybe 3 to 4 years later, I might have a very different view again and come back to refute all these. What Makes Chinese Writing Look Good? Before we continue further, please look at these two characters. […]
