Djd Has a New Toy

Fountain pen sketchers were talking about Fude pens.  They looked very interesting.  Then a friend let me try hers out.  What fun!  So I ordered one.

They come from Japan.  It was expected to take 3 weeks but came after only one.  Woo hoo!

A small origami was included in the package.  This is a Sailor Fude (pronounced foo-day).  It was originally meant for calligraphy.  According to the angle at which one writes or draws, the line will vary in thickness.

The nib has a bent point.  This one is at 55°.

Of course, I had to dirty some paper.  A5

The pen comes with two cartridges of black ink, not permanent.  So much fun when touched with a wet brush (carefully).  I also ordered a converter which is on its way separately.  This is basically a refillable cartridge.  We will see how much of a mess I make with that!

About djdfr

Daily life experiences by a Franco-American woman living in the Breton countryside form the basics of this blog. Gardening, watercolour, choral music, food, are some of my interests. I seek to balance the physical, mental and spiritual. I am a free believer praying from the Bible, the Qur’an and The Revelation of Arès. In 1974, with Jesus as the messenger, and in 1977, manifesting as a stick of light, Our Creator spoke directly to a man in Arès, France, named Michel Potay. The message is in the book “The Revelation of Arès”. It is a call for us to change, to practice love, peacemaking, forgiveness, to free ourselves from all prejudice, to develop our spiritual intelligence, the intelligence of the heart.
