Writing on papyrus
But how is it possible to write on this genuine papyrus scroll, without losing its mystical quality?
The blank scroll can be easily written on using pens or ink. Coloured felt tips can be used without difficulty. The use of black or brown ink is recommended so as to give the most authentic appearance to the script. In a coloured design, only natural-looking and earthy colours should be used to avoid a modern appearance.
Anyone who is completely hooked on the magic and mysticism of the ancient world can try using an ancient reed pen. A rustic quill or a traditional ink pen are also excellent for authentic effect. Calligraphic elements and antique-style symbols or characters will add additional charm. Do not forget that the papyrus documents of antiquity were usually adorned with symbols and drawings. With ingenuity, creativity and the right tools you can make your own personal document in the style of ancient scrolls.
