Design Transfer and Inking: After writing in the main calligraphy, I transferred the design sketch to the vellum using the reverse impression technique discussed with the Greek manuscript. I had to adjust the design in a few spots where it would have overlapped with the calligraphy, then I strengthened the transfer with a mechanical pencil and began to go over it with ink and the crowquill. Versal capitals were also sketched in at this time.
