Studio Sunday-Ready for the Lantern Festival

Tonight is the Newburyport Lantern Festival where I am one of the volunteer calligraphers. The lanterns will floating on the Frog Pond at Bartlet Mall at dusk. It was suggested I bring fountain pens or markers. I'm not sure how waterproof the writing needs to be so I did a little test. "Brush" is written with Faber & Castell PITT Brush Pens. They are waterproof but I'd prefer to use something more responsive. "Nicholas" is written with my favorite Pentel brush pen and looks like it will hold up fairly well. And the Pilot Parallel pen ink definitely does not stand up. I'm going to bring all but hope to use the Pentel brush pen.
