Tracing with a Pen

Example of a pen nib

Using paint mixed with essential oil or turpentine and with a fine mapping pen for small lettering works well, as the oil flows better than water. Although with practice, a water based paint can be used with a pen, but it is a little tedious as the pen has to be loaded frequently with a tracing brush and constantly cleaned as the water dries quickly.
