How to Write with a Dip Nib

Glass Pens with Metal Dip Nibs hold ink in the underside of the nibs. Metal nib pens work best with calligraphy inks, but are fine with fountain pen ink too. Thicker ink hugs the nib better. Dip your metal nib about halfway into your inkwell, then remove any excess ink. To begin writing with a metal nib vary your pressure to see different line variations  - Try writing at an angle and not vertically. Clean your pen regularly as you write by dipping it in water every 2-3 minutes and then wiping it off with a cotton cloth.

About Bortoletti Murano Glass Pens

An encounter between Bortoletti and Venetian artist Elio Martella led to a fusion of art and intentions, triggering intense research to give practicality, beauty, color and elegance to calligraphy’s instrument of preference: the dip pen. The Murano glass pen strikes the perfect balance between our Venetian origins and our passion for calligraphy, between art and the artisan’s creative ferment. Each glass pen is created entirely by the hands of Silvia and Adriano with exceeding patience and precision. With extraordinary skill, they take rods of Murano glass in the chosen colors and melt them together with silver leaf and goldstone in front of a flame. Just imagine the glowing gob of molten glass softening in the heat of the fire, an enchanting sight that never fails to amaze! While the body of the Murano glass pen is being worked, the bronze nib is made through lost wax precision casting – a technique once used by ancient Greek and Roman sculptors – passing through the hands of at least five different craftspeople. The final phase in the creation of a Murano glass dip pen is the assembly of its parts and the vitally important quality control, which is done by Fabio. After Fabio gives his approval, the pen passes into Elena’s hands for a final operational check before packaging.
