A place to discuss Lettering
I am currentlu trying to learn how to do lettering with brush markers. I dont see many posts here. Are there any others who do this?
Hi Dusty! The forum is relatively new, so not too many posts yet. I do hope to see more for brush lettering.
I have a tiny bit of experience with actual brushes, most of my experience is with digital brushes on my iPad, but I’m happy to see what I can do to help.
Do you currently have any brush markers you use?
Kelly Creates has a resource at https://www.kellycreates.ca/learn-brush-lettering/ She also sells her own brush markers, practice materials, etc. Her brush markers are firmer than most other brands of brush marker.
Before Michaels changed its classroom program, I taught a couple of brush lettering classes in the free evening class program. The projects are still up on Michaels’ web site, but the lettering practice templates have been removed. I did an online search for “brush lettering worksheet” and came up with a number of tutorials and practice sheets. (Tombow, my preferred brand of brush markers, has downloadable practice sheets here https://www.tombowusa.com/mwdownloads/download/link/id/59/. They are similar to the practice/try-out sheets Michaels used to have above the Tombow markers in its stores.)
FWIW, being left-handed I have some difficulty holding my brush markers in the correct orientation to form some of the letters properly.
