This is something I've been doing since being the student at the Academy and calligraphy is one of the reasons I wanted to attend the Graphic department. Now days, unfortunately, computer fonts are substituting the hand writing and I'm not having the chance very often to use some of my skills, that I'm found of very much;)
I like this process of preparing everything, from copying the letters till filling them with ink, than glue and finally adding some "gold leaves"(used for saint icons and fresco paintings) to obtain a bit of old, relief, vintage like, patina look
Marta loves it as well, always being very faithful follower;)
As the kids are still on Vacation and outside is still very cold and snowy, I'm also trying to take some time and take them to the garden of my mom's place, where the snow is always clean....
They enjoy playing for some 30 minutes, after which period becomes impossible to stay...
Yesterday night, Marta and I, have been watching the snowboard event, hosted in our street, Kapetan Misina, just a few meters under our building.
And you can see the video here
