For the second year in a row, I hosted a Lettering Tool Tour. I packed up many of my favorite markers, pens, papers, and storage so that fellow Lucky Star Campers could test them out.
In an hour . . .
I demonstrated some of my favorites and then participants got to have hands-on experience with all of them! There were six different tables set up and all of these tools were available.
Participants said. . .
They loved being able to try them out and compare different brands and different styles of tools in such a short amount of time. I did hear that Amazon carts were getting loaded up during this class!
Favorite Lettering Tools and Supplies
Writing on Textures
These pens and bottles are great for writing on textures that will "eat" through marker tips. Great for multi-media projects.
Lots of choices out there, but I find you get what you pay for. The cheaper ones tend to run out quicker and not have as smooth a coverage.
I am in love with paint pens because I use a lot of words in my artwork and I love being able to grab a marker and have acrylic paint begin to flow.
These are my favorites when I am combining watercolor and ink. The Staedtler Pigment Liners can be left uncapped up to about 12 hours and will still work!
Yes! The paper makes a difference. Cheap paper can be very rough on markers. Thin paper will not hold up multiple layers of texture. Here are some of my favorites.
Embellishing Lettering Tools
These add pizzazz and happiness to your work or journals or doodles.
