   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


Hello everyone,

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?


Thank you,
