Parchment and Quill

Parchment and Quill

One of my continuing goals is to be as authentic in my craft as I feel I can reasonably be. Sometimes that means that I machine sew my clothes except for visible stitches. Sometimes that means I order three ounces of white silk tram to dye with natural dyes for embroidery.

This time, it means that I got to play around with real parchment, with iron gall ink, using a goose-feather quill I cut myself. First test on a parchment scrap with a goose quill pen.
