Recently we used bamboo pens, black paint, and paper to write like people did in Bible times.
It takes much longer to write this way. You must dip the pen repeatedly in the paint. You have to think about how to form the letters carefully.
Sometimes you write and decide to create interesting marks.
Try out these bamboo pens. (We got ours at the craft store, in the calligraphy section.) Using these pens makes writing a slightly different experience.
