Openinkstand Art & Calligraphy

Hello Schin. I’ve been following for quite some time now. Love your work. Most envious. 2 questions. 1) could you use white paint on a nib, instead if white Indian ink? 2) I live in Canada, and would be up for your ‘annoy the mailman’ thing. Only I don’t have a scanner. I have a lovely DSLR Camera, that I know how to shoot (canon T3i). Can I still take part in it?

Hello! Thank you and I’m glad you like my work!

1) Sure! You can use gouache and all kinds of white paint on a nib. As long as it flows well, you can mix it and apply it to the nib using a brush. Just make sure not to let the ink dry on the nib and clean it very well.

2) That’s okay too, as long as you can send me a stamp and able to take good frontal pictures of the envelope, you can participate in Annoy A Postman project. For US residents, please send a valid USPS forever stamp (US$0.49) and for international addresses, please send US stamps worth US$1.15. These are the stamps I will be using to mail the envelope to you, so if they are not valid, it will not arrive to you! You can buy unused USPS stamps on ebay.
