Learn the Art of Brush Lettering + Calligraphy!
A video look at the supplies I use and recommend.
The Basic Strokes
On the upstrokes, you use light pressure and on the downstrokes, you use heavier pressure. I’ll demonstrate this in a video below.
As I mentioned in the first video, using the proper paper keeps your brush tips in great condition so look for ultra-smooth paper designed for use with brush pens and markers.
My favorites are:
- Rhodia Dot Pad
- Canson Marker Paper
- Copic X-Press It Paper
- Watercolor Paper: Hot Press is smoother than Cold Press so opt for the hot press!
- Copy Paper: HP Premium Choice Laserjet Paper
Holding the Brush Pen
You can really hold your pen however it is comfortable for you, but one thing you need to do is hold it at a roughly 45-degree angle, as demonstrated in the video lesson.
