Brush pens are fantastic for lettering beginners because the flexible tip allows you to practice consistent thicks and thins, and the saturation of the colors are consistent. With brush pens you don’t have to worry about working with ink or paint, and you can focus on technique and experiment with styles. These are also fun for illustration!
Watercolor and Ink
Watercolor brush lettering is a personal favorite; I love how colors blend together and the effects you can achieve are endless.
Whether you’re using markers or watercolor, the right paper will make a huge difference. Brush tip markers glide effortlessly over smooth marker paper. A high quality watercolor paper will help prevent wrinkling and warping. Beautiful sketchbooks will keep your work bound in one place. Technical paper like grid and tracing paper will help you perfect your designs.
