This excellent article by Bob Sullivan for Writing with the Quill Pen will get you started. Below are some excerpts:
The Writing Pressure
LIGHT, LIGHT, LIGHT!!! Hold the quill as if writing and make small circles with it on the back of your other hand (Try this without ink. :) ) When you can make slight indentations on your hand without leaving a slight scratch mark, you are using the proper pressure to write. The pressure most of us use to write with today is way, way, too hard to use with a quill.
Use a good calligraphy ink. DO NOT USE INDIA INK WHEN USING A QUILL! India ink has too strong an adhesive quality, and will not flow freely from a quill...Actually, I recommend that you do not use powdered ink when starting out. Go to an art store and ask for calligraphy ink."

Ingredients: saponified olive and coconut oils, lard, water. Discontinue use if adverse reaction occurs.
C&C Sutlery bar soap does not contain lye. Early bar soap has been called "grandma's lye soap". Soap must be made with alkali, often referred to as "lye". Back in the day when Grandma made soap she didn't have access to a lye calculator so she had to guess how much lye to use in her soap. That often resulted in what is called a "lye heavy" soap. With the use of a modern lye calculator, our handcrafted soap has no lye in the final product. The lye has reacted with the oils completely to result in in a beautiful, pure soap.
