Happy Tuesday! I want to start by saying wow to everyone who has checked out Bounce Lettering! I’m so grateful for all of the kind feedback and I am so impressed and inspired by all of the wonderful projects that are coming out of the class! I thought I’d take bounce lettering/waterbrush lettering even a little further this week with a free add-on tutorial to both classes.

A style that is gaining in popularity over on Instagram is rainbow brush lettering. It would take foreverrrr to alternate colors to form a word, let alone form the word as pretty as you’d like with so many re-dips. In this week’s video, I’m sharing a trick for applying a rainbow of color to your brush lettering without a zillion re-dips in the process 🙂 There are two methods shown in the video – one to ease you into the process and the other to take full advantage of all the colors you’d like. Links to the products used + everything you need to know to start rainbow brush lettering below!

  • Wow! Cool tutorial. I can’t wait to try this 🙂 What happens if you’re doing the second method (the water outline) and you get interrupted? Say you got have the word coloured but there’s a delivery of phone call. Can you complete the process by going over the letters with water again and continue on from there?

  • I actually tried to do this kind of watercolor-blending lettering, but it’d always go wrong. Now I realize that I was using WAY too little water (the watercolor would dry almost immediately), and I tried to “force” the colors together on the paper instead of letting them just meld together naturally. Thanks!

  • Thank you so much! Your teaching style is so great!
