Technique - Copying a Period Hand
When I started making scrolls, I used the ductus in my calligraph y books for whichever script I needed. As I got more and more comfortabl e with each of the scripts, I wanted to expand my knowledge and skill by attempting to replicate period scribes' hands.

I would suggest trying this after you have some experience with a few different scripts, and working at a few different sizes. It helps to be comfortabl e with the pen and forming letter shapes that you can figure out how to make the letters on your own. That said, it can also be a good exercise to train your eye and hand by spending quality time with period calligraph y.
