This project is about expressive calligraphy. To develop this letters I experimented with a new tool, the colapen. It’s a handmade tool, you can create your own easily, with just a can, a stick and some tape. It’s very interesting to find out the results you can get depending on how you cut the edges of the can, you can get different textures, effects and different strokes, it’s a really nice way to experiment creating your own tools.
To do this project I used different colapens I created, it’s the perfect tool to do some expressive calligraphy, fast strokes and movements. The final result is quite interesting, how the ink has different tones depending on where stayed longer, a mix of colours which ends in gradients, ink splashes and lines that are difficult to get with any other tool. I totally recommend to experiment creating your own tools!
