Fabulous Brush Lettering

$65.00 CAD



Brush Writing with Pentel Brush Colour Brush or Pocket Brush Pens

In this workshop we will explore the versatile Colour Brush Pen as a writing tool. We will practice some pressure and release strokes and create a basic script based on lower case italic that will allow for infinite variations. We will talk about different types of brushes for lettering, how they are used and how to take care of them, so they last for years to come.
