Calligraphy Every Day 2: Waity

Sometimes you have to work with paper that is a little too thirsty; it soaks up too much ink, too fast. You can turn this to your advantage with this cute little brush alphabet, Waity, which adds ball serifs to the ends of strokes and the corners of letters. 

Tissue paper, newsprint, paper towels, paper napkins--now you can write anywhere you like, with appealing style. All you have to learn to do is wait! 
Dip any pointed brush in any ink, hold it straight up and down, and write on any absorbent paper. Experiment with short pauses or long ones, gradual acceleration or abrupt starts and stops.
