I purchased the Manuscript beginner’s calligraphy fountain pen set for working with the Pen and Ink Experience lessons. I’ve tried to handle the pens as I see Matt doing in the lessons. No matter which nib size I used, I was unable to get smooth or consistent lines. The pens kept skipping while trying to hatch or cross hatch. I have no such problems with Sakura Pigma Micron pens. Would the problem be pen quality or how I’m using them?
It could be that you don’t have enough ink in the nib or you are pressing down to hard. I have that problem too. If I go lightly it seems to work better.
