carol's JUBILEE valentines

carol (creator of DuBosch JUBILEE Script) sent this photo of her valentines in progress...aren't they pretty? i wonder what kind of white ink works in a pilot pen? does anyone know? and maybe she just dips the pen rather than filling the cartridge. i have not had time to do much experimenting with the pilot pen. i suppose i could buy a book....ha!

thank you for sharing these with us, carol.


  1. The perfect match of the red on the stamp to the envelope gives the effect that the stamp has been handwritten onto the letter - very cool.

  2. I wrote the names with an Automatic Pen (Size 3A) which works like the Parallel Pens making fine lines with the nib corner. I used white FW acrylic, which flowed beautifully. I don't know of an opaque white that would be safe in the Parallel Pens.

  3. I have used Dr Martin's Pen White in a parallel pen for Guild demo sessions over three days. However, if you're not going to use it within 24 hours, you have to clean it out thoroughly or it really clogs the pen.
