Some Tips on How To Use Your Pen
- The success of your brush lettering relies on pressure. The amount of pressure you place on the pen will allow you to transition from thick, bold lines to ultra-fine lines.
- Practice thin upstrokes and thick downstrokes.
- Hold your pen at an angle, about 45 degrees, with relatively loose grip. Using the pen upright will damage the tip of the pen.
- Lift between strokes, especially when changing direction. This will help with your spacing.
- Take it slow! I like to really take my time to form each letter.
- Practice, practice, practice. No one is perfect the first or even second time around. The more you practice, the better you'll become. :)
