Project by Olivier Rielland Nadeau

Inspired by back to school clothes shopping, Oliver chose to personalize a raincoat with the words “sauf qui pleut” (rain for your life), a play on the expression “sauf qui peut” (run for your life). Olivier Rielland Nadeau on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/crispy_kerning/

Instructions:

Step 1: Just like athletes, calligraphers need to warm up pre-game. Olivier starts by drawing circles on paper, then long straight lines.

 

Step 2: If it’s your first time using it, assemble your Parallel Pen.

 

Step 3: Once your hand is warmed-up, use a pencil to draw a subtle grid. You’ll write the letters between these fine lines, ensuring your work is straight.

 

Step 4: Ink is unforgiving. Using the Parallel Pen, sketch out your idea on paper first. It might take several dry runs to get it right.

 

Step 5: Take a deep breath and begin lettering.

 

Step 6: Add a varnish to help the ink set into the material and remain waterproof.

You will need:

  • Calligraphy pen
  • Liquitex ink
