HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR COPPERPLATE | COPPERPLATE VARIATIONS WITH A STRAIGHT PEN HOLDER PART 2 This is my approach to the study of these letters. I ALWAYS start with a Derwent 6B pencil and it helps to inform the shape. It also forces me to dramatically slow down in order to mimic the nib. Once I have gotten the shape and proportions right, and it feels right in the hand, I attempt to execute it with a nib. This adds a whole other order of complexity to the writing as the nib is very springy. Most people press hard very quickly and that also speeds up the writing which causes the letter to collapse. This will be an ongoing series to help get you interested in the shapes we have in English Roundhand but also in the hopes that it will encourage you to do some historical research.
