To mark your pattern?
Most of my work on linen has been counted, but for scrollwork I've used
(gently!) a number2 pencil
And for other things one of those blue washout pens. Don't know how much
help that is.

Subject: [HNW] Ink for Linen
My current project is an alter cloth from Lower Saxony in the 14th Century.
I took some pictures at the V&A of a partially finished piece. I have the
Cennini references. I have learned to cut a quill. So, I am a sure that I
want to apply in this manner.
Has anyone tried any period inks on linen? If not, has anyone done modern
inks on linen?
