How to Do Brush Lettering with Free Practice Worksheets. Download these free worksheets and get practicing!
Want a sneak peek into some of the things we work on in my Art + Lettering Class Facebook group? This post was the weekly exercise a few weeks back. You can join us by clicking the image below.
Brush lettering takes some practice but it’s really fun once you get the hang of it. Using a marker or pen with a brush nib, you use pressure to create a calligraphic style of lettering. On the upstrokes, you use light pressure and on the down strokes you use heavier pressure. I’ll demonstrate this in a video later in the post.
Practice definitely makes progress, so I designed some free printable practice sheets. I suggest printing these and trying to do them once a day until you are comfortable with using pressure to create the calligraphic lettering style.
The two brush pens I use most often are both by Tombow. These are the basics for brush lettering.
