    Did you try fountain pens? I love using them on laid paper and 70 to 90 lb art paper.

    I did try it…but you know for some reason after writing 10 pages with my fountain pen, the nib was too rough for any other paper

    You can’t use fountain pens on handmade cotton paper. The fibers get stuck in the nib. It’s horrible and pain to get them out. Only extra wet nibs or flex nibs are able to write on them. And even at that it’s still a headache

    I used sharpies, and the ink goes through the pages. Be careful, it doesn’t seem to be good for all handmade papers…

    My wife bought me a beautiful large leather bound art journal filled with cotton/ linen paper she thought would take watercolor. I also sketch with a Sailor Fude fountain pen that I would like to try someday. I almost hate to use it since I just started sketching and watercolor, talk about pressure..
