I’m super excited about my current project. I’ve hit 5 or 6 bumps in the road along the way, but it’s all well worth it. It’s a bit of a history project where everything is new to me. I’ve needed to research historical paper types, inks, writing utensils, grammar, and a feeble attempt at being an artist. While that artist part will never achieve the levels I will like it to for this project, I push forward. I will be visiting a museum in the next 2 weeks to get some more info for my project. While the internet is good to look at pictures, I am looking beyond what a picture can tell. What does the ink look like on the page? How faded is it? How much did the page absorb the ink? Was there bleeding of the ink? How has it lasted the test of time? I guess what I’m saying is – don’t expect a small project to be short or easy, you might geed fooled by something looking simple.
