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 favorite papers and pads are listed below.
- 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.
Free Brush Calligraphy Practice Sheets
Practice definitely makes progress, so I share a TON of free printable practice sheets here on the blog. I suggest printing these and trying to do at least one sheet per day until you are comfortable with using pressure to create the calligraphic lettering style.
