Even if you’ve never held a brush, you can master the elegant art of brush lettering! Graphic designer Krislam Chin reviews the essential strokes and techniques you need to create three custom cards, as well as handmade envelopes, gift tags and more. She even shares ideas for incorporating brush lettering into your daily routine.
Krislam begins by going over the materials you'll need to get started. Then practice using your brush pens as you dive into some drills and create simple block letters, focusing on how to vary the pressure to achieve different stroke widths.
After you have the basic strokes down, follow along as Krislam walks you through each of the script letters you'll be using most throughout class.
Next, practice connecting letters to build words as you learn about letter anatomy, before exploring two lettering styles: non-bouncy and bouncy.
