Supply ListA split nib is handled exactly as one would handle a broad-edged pen. The split nib, sometimes called a scroll pen, creates outline alphabets. With the split nib, a letter becomes a contour drawing with only lines on the outside while the center has nothing in it. Not yet, anyway. The fun part of an outline letter is what you can do around the letter and inside the letter. The only limitation is your imagination. Fun, interesting alphabets are possible with the split nib as are a myriad of other ideas. You will learn the cornering technique that can add some interesting flourishes to any letter. The alphabet below is just a small sample of what we will cover.
