Bite-size tip: How to use a Maru (Mapping) nib without a suitable holder

June 18, 2017

Have a Maru/Mapping nib, but don’t have the right holder for it?
Here are 2 suggestions for how you can still use it

  • Slide it on the other side of a straight Speedball holder.
    The balance isn’t good, but it’s still possible to use.
  • If you have a small brush you do not use, trim it’s hairs and slide the nib on it.
    This will give you a very comfortable tool to use. I used a brush, size 1, and it fit perfectly.
