Thing to Love Hard: Lettering

brush lettering and caligraphy

My current hobby (obsession) is hand lettering.  

Calligraphy, Brush Calligraphy, Watercolor…I don’t care.  I love it all.

That makes it sound like I know what I’m doing.

I don’t.

I just follow a ton of Calligraphers and Hand Letter-ers on Instagram now.

Their talent mesmerizes me.

Especially Angeliqueink , Annerobin, WritePrettyThings, Bugaboobeardesigns (because HARRY POTTER), and PiecesCaligraphy

Basically, I find something I like on Pinterest or Instagram, and try to recreate it.

Or make my own…but I’m not really good enough for that yet.

So I steal ideas instead.

IT’S FLATTERY.

Don’t judge.

Right now, my favorite tools are

admin-ajax (2)The Pentel Brush Aquas Water Brush Pens   for watercolor.

(OH MY GOD SO FUN)

admin-ajax (2)Tombow Fudenosuke Brush Pens for easier Calligraphy and lettering.  
(I’m partial to the hard tip.  That’s what she said.)
admin-ajax (2)Tombow Duel Brush Pens for Brush Calligraphy.
(I really suck at brush calligraphy so it’s not my favorite right now but SO MANY COLORS!!!
I only have one set of 10 of these cause I’M NOT A MILLIONAIRE.
But I want more.
Buy me more.)

As for actual Calligraphy, I have one pen and one thing of ink.
Don’t really understand any of it yet.
Work in progress.
