Tutorial: Cola Pens


Cola Pens Photographed by Gustavo Angeli via Pinterest

A cola pen is a calligraphy pen with a nib curved so that line width can be varied with pressure or holding the pen differently. It's called a cola pen because you can make one yourself with a cola can! Be careful, though.

Of course, if you're making your calligraphy nib for free, why pay for ink?  You can just make your own from black walnuts, berries (video), or acrylic paint.
