It is okay to be overwhelmed by the exceeding number of Calligraphy pens, products and tools available in the market. But if you really want to try your hand at brush lettering, this quick guide will help you pick the brush pens you could use.
The Brush Pen
Some genius created the brush tip markers. This has spawned a large variety of brush pens including felt tip pens. These are ideal markers for beginners because they are flexible but not too flexible. A market with bristle-top is a great choice too because the tip is made of individual bristles like a real brush.
Though Tombow Dual Brush Pens are insanely famous in the world of brush lettering, many beginners opt for Sakura Koi Coloring Pens. They are economical and the colors are just too beautiful. The brush pens require you to write big so that you can see where you need to improve your lettering. But if you want to write small, perhaps you can try Pentel Fude Touch Sign Pen.
If you don’t want to work with markers, you can try water brushes. Fill up a barrel of the brush with water and when you apply a bit of pressure to the barrel, water will wet the brush bristles, which you then dab on the paint. Quite simple! And if you really want to have an instant solution, just be smarter and fill up the barrel with liquid water colors. You’d have an instant water brush.
You can mix your own colors and experiment. You can get your first set of Sakura Koi Coloring Pens at Paper Clip. Tell us how it goes. All the best!
