A couple of weeks ago, I shared some tips for using a waterbrush to create watercolor lettering. It was so well received, I wanted to do a follow up using that same waterbrush, but with ink this time. Yep, I filled that blue waterchamber with super black speedball ink instead of water, squeezed + lettered to my heart’s content 🙂 Before filling the waterbrush with ink, I had been using a Tombow for my brush script lettering, but after burning through a few pretty quickly, I was in search for an alternative to save a little dough. That led me to the waterbrush and I haven’t looked back! In this week’s video, I share some basic tips for getting started with your own brush script lettering. Lettering in black vs. watercolor will quickly allow you to scan your artwork in, vectorize it and use it in a bunch of applications quickly, like masking or font making (more on that next month!). Let’s get started!
Brush Script Lettering Basics
– Waterbrush (the medium sized one was used throughout the tutorial)
– India Ink + I’d recommend getting one of these eyedroppers for easier filling 🙂
– cardstock (or in the office section of any retail/department store)
p.s. I’d love to see what you create! Use #etbrushscript + follow on Instagram!
