Hey everyone! So while most of my designs I know create on my iPad Pro, when i started lettering it was with old fashioned pens and paper! That I believe is the best way to get comfortable with the pressures needed and to sketch and come up with your own style! So I figured I would drop all my favorites right here for you all in case you were curious or had no idea where to start!
Uchida Le Pen Flex-This one is my favorite for a beautiful thin brush stroke.
Zebra Pen Zenzations Brush Pen
I use paint pens for all my wood signs, mirrors, and glass! You can also use it on acrylic surfaces!
Molotow ONE4ALL Paint Marker- this gives a beautiful easy flow to the pen and you can buy replacement nibs and paint for it! Comes in different sizes but this size is my favorite for a thin line. And there are crazy amounts of color options!
Sharpie Paint Pen- This one is usually a beautiful opaque white but I find the pen malfunctions the most so you just gotta be careful when using
Zig Posterman Pen- great for acrylic surfaces!
CHALK MARKERS- So plain old chalk also works wonderful to play with faux calligraphy but I don't personally like the feeling of chalk, so I prefer my chalk to be in pen form ;)
Marvy Uchida Bistro Chalk Marker
America Crafts Chalk Marker- This one definitely has the closest to regular chalk look and feel. It's very erasable and writes like a chalk does.
OTHER ITEMS- So of course pens are kinda the main item to lettering but I have an assortment of other items I keep handy while I am lettering!
Mechanical Pencil- for sketches
Staedtler Eraser- works so amazing at getting rid of sketch marks and no smudging!
Laser Line- This is not the exact one I use but it is very similar! I use this to keep myself going straight on signs ;)
Silhouette Cameo- I use this to cut Vinyls! It's an investment piece but has been so valuable! Plus it helps me create all kinds of cool, diverse items! This version is a step up from what I have but same machine
Glowforge- This is my new investment piece and OMG I am in love. This is a laser cutter that does it all! I will be doing a separate blog on "Glowie" as we call it around here in a few weeks ;)
