How to write with a fountain pen

Difficulties will immediately arise from those who are used to writing with strong pressure. Although in calligraphy the type of the font depends on the pressure. It is necessary to correctly hold the pen - and if the ballpoint can be written vertically, then the pen is almost horizontal. When writing, a corner should be formed, and the hand can easily move on the paper. To smooth the line, grip the handle correctly — between the upper phalanges of the middle and index fingers, resting the edge of the palm on the table.

It often seems that the fountain pen is heavier than usual, it is in fact, by virtue of the composite design. Having a decent weight, such a pen moves by inertia, producing a wrist training with rotational movements of the hand in the process of writing.

The thickness of the line can be adjusted if desired, for this you should pay attention to the tip of the handle that is sensitive to any pressure. If you touch lightly, the line will be thin; if you press a little, the line will automatically thicken. These delights are useful if you want to write in calligraphic handwriting, but this is the next step in learning to write.

As a rule, learning difficulties are primarily related to the ink supply to the nib. However, if the handle is of high quality, then there are usually no such problems. If you regularly train, you can not only quickly learn the rules of writing with a pen, but you will not notice how this process will become an ordinary pleasant thing.
