That Tyvek roll ...

 At Calligraphy Northwest July 2012, we were all given a Tyvek roll.  It is pretty neat stuff. I have used it in the past in bookbinding for covers, painting banners and experimental works. 

Finally I have painted it.



Preparing Noodlers inks & brushes for painting the tyvek roll.

It was messy but great fun.



The roll!






Testing the roll with pen white - don't look too closely at the lettering it is just a trial!
Very happy with the results!

Now I need a really long quote ...

It looks wonderful!

P.S. You can either quote an entire play by Shakespeare or repeat the same quote over and over again :)
