PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE ON HOLIDAY FROM 22/12/2022 UNTIL 03/01/2023.
Orders can still be placed during this period but will only be despatched as normal from 03/01/2023. We expect disruption to deliveries over the next few weeks because of the Postal strikes and the backlog that these will create. Please allow extra time for your order to reach you.
ROYAL MAIL STRIKE ACTION AND LAST POSTING DATES
Because of RM strikes due to take place on 9th, 11th, 14th, 15th, 23rd and 24th of December, there will be disruption to our collections and delays on delivery times. We will be working hard to get your goods out to you but please allow more time for delivery of your orders as a result of the delays this will cause.
Delivery is no longer guaranteed for Christmas.
Here you’ll find a selection of artists dip pens. Dip Pens are traditional drawing and writing implements for Drawing, Calligraphy and applying Acrylic Inks and some paints.
Please note: Some nibs may require ‘seasoning’. This is due to an over zealous use of coating that is used to protect brand new nibs prior to use so can occur in the occasional nib from any brand or type. To season, simply hold the nib over a candle flame for a second or two to make the nib hold onto and allow the smooth flow of ink. Repeat if necessary. We would recommend using tweezers to hold the nib to ensure hands and wooden nib holders are kept away from the naked flame.
We choose the materials that we sell very carefully, selecting only extremely reliable and high quality products. This is a selection that you’ll also find on our dedicated art materials website www.curtisward.com.
