Didn’t know much about this recipient. There wasn’t much of a write-up, but I was able to get in touch with Skarp, and get his side of the story. I wish I had a little more room to add some more detail.
I used a larger brush for the dots, though the bristles weren’t even, so even drawing little circles turned out to be a little square. Also, not a fan of the Bulletproof Black. two days after drying I still couldn’t erase the pencil lines without the ink beginning to smudge some.
Materials: Bristol smooth finish paper, Noodler’s Bulletproof Black ink, Brause #5 nib, and a Brause (unknown) pointed nib, and watercolor paints.
I didn’t think of doing progress photos because it was started right after the previous one (Padtraig’s Sapphire). In hind site, I could have taken some as it’s still a unique scroll.
