Calligraphy Every Day 14: Pencil rough

When you plan a calligraphy layout, you need to rough out the letters to see how the spacing works.  You can get a good approximation of your final lettering, without laboring over a draft and then starting over, with Pencil Rough letters.  

Pencil lead can be ground flat to make the thicks and thins of a broad-edged pen.  A wide carpenter's pencil comes already flat. 
You may like the texture of pencil letters so well you find ways to use it on finished work!
