Aldith Pelican, Full Size Completed Scroll197 viewsFor about three hours, my personal scribal backlog was down to one. Then Obadiah the Obstreperous won the Crown Lists and two more assignments leapt onto it. Whaddaya gonna do? Click on the photos to see and read the details about this scroll and find out "How I Did It." I forgot to keep track of the number of hours it took, but it was probably in excess of 130. As I retired this year each work session could be longer, usually from 2 to 4-5 hours at a time. -- TatianaTatiana Nikolaevna55555

Mistress Robin of Thornwood, Companion of the Laurel132 viewsWhen Robin of Thornwood was elevated to the Order of the Laurel, four of us who were her fellow scribes and friends decided to collaborate on making her Laurel scroll. As is often the case in elaborate plans, it took a lot more time and effort than first envisioned. But two and a half years after the first idea, here's the completed "Scroll of the 11 Robins", executed with gouache, ink, period gesso, and 22-karat gold leaf on 3-ply Bristol vellum paper measuring 18x24 inches, from the hands of Oonagh Bhán, Eliska z Jihlava, Aldith Angharad St. George, and Tatiana Nikolaevna Tumanova.

Overpainting the Text78 views2013-04-13. It was a 3-day headache, too. Had meant to use Brilliant Yellow as it's a close match to patent gold leaf (in case there was a lot of gilding, didn't want it to clash) but it was too transparent and anemic. Switched to Cadmium Yellow and it did the trick! Using a pen for the 2nd run didn't work, the nib scratched up the white paint and clogged even more, so had to use a brush to paint over the text; doing each full-length line took about 12-15 minutes. My hand hurt.Tatiana Nikolaevna55555
