    how do you hold your paper? is it straight up and down or to you have the top of the page tilted to the right? I'm left handed and attempting to self teach myself so, any tiny hints are great! I also follow you on Instagram, I love your work! 😊

    I'm new to calligraphy and also a lefty. I want to know on how do you keep your hand from touching the wet ink and smudging, as well as how do you keep on creating a firm upward line. Also, I like that kind of paper. It's easier to see how much space you'll need to write a letter. Unfortunately it still isn't available in my country

    I have ink flow problems. it could be the ink or nibs. but it happens with every nib. I have. when I dip my pen and write a letter it makes really thick lines with no form. it seems to. be too much ink even when I take off the excess. what would you recommend for that problem.

    I have a very shakey looking upstroke. It isn't smooth curves. Is that something that will get better with practice or am I doing something wrong?

    I could only dream of writing like that, I write ok not scruffy but I'm not fantastic neither

    SO!… As a left handed writer of such an art as you are….would you recommend using a straight dip pen or a left handed oblique dip pen???
