I got these fun brush markers in exchange for this post.
Brush lettering is huge right now.
It can be intimidating to just jump into Calligraphy.
A great place to start is with faux calligraphy.
The brush tip is great for actual brush lettering and the thin end is perfect for faux calligraphy.
These tips fray fairly easily, so I only recommend them for faux calligraphy.
(forgive the f that looks a little like a b)
Practice in pencil if you feel more comfortable.
Go slow and make the letters connect.
Every place where you do a "down stroke", you are going to make that part thicker.
So I used a pink marker to show you, slightly exaggerated, where the downstrokes are.
Big thick lines for the downstrokes and thin lines for the upstrokes!
You did it!
Just write out the desired word or phrase.
You are on your way to lettering all sorts of fun decor, signs, and art!
This is the best time of year to buy cheap school supplies, so get some markers and practice!
So much fun and so rewarding!
Here's another tutorial of mine on faux calligraphy...it's fun to see
because even I have gotten better in the last 2 years!
