November 10, Alrighty friend, this post is a doozy. All about getting started with brush pen calligraphy. Before we get going I want to point out that I created a free printable practice sheet for you to have!
Just click here to download. Brush pen calligraphy has been taking the world by storm lately! And for good reason! Brush pens are so fun because you can create a huge variety of lettering styles with just one pen! If you have seen my post on 10 easy hand lettering stylesevery one of those styles can be done by using only a brush pen!
It really is a fun skill to learn because it can push your art to the next level. For example, learning brush lettering has completely changed the way I do Bible journaling.
Before, I would only apply some basic watercolor and write the key verse down in my normal handwriting. Not that there is anything wrong with that!!!
But now I use brush calligraphy, or brush lettering, in So I thought it about time that I give you a basic overview of what brush pen calligraphy is and how to do it!
I also have free calligraphy worksheets for you to have! Use them to practice useful shapes and the alphabet in both uppercase and lowercase!
So go ahead and click here or on the image below and print those out! I think that it is easier to both show, and learn, how to do brush calligraphy through a visual, so I made a video! But I know sometimes I need the steps in writing as well, so feel free to keep scrolling to learn more!
Picking your Brush Pen A brush pen is essentially a marker with a bendy tip. Some brush pens have bristles like a paint brush, but most have a felt tip like a normal marker.
I personally prefer the felt-tipped ones, but that could be a fun thing to play around with! Perhaps the favorite among all brush calligraphers, and the most recommended brush pen for beginners, is the Tombow Fudenosuke Brush pens.
You can get a pack here on Amazon affiliate link That has both the hard tip and soft tip Fudenosuke. Or just try both. Bonus- the Tombow Fudenosuke also does not bleed through Journaling Bible pages and it is waterproof! These, however, are not the best for Bible journaling as they tend to bleed through an unprepared page.
They are also not waterproof. I recommend starting out with the Fudenosuke and then as you get more comfortable with the technique, branching out and trying other types of brush pens.
The three I mentioned are just a very few out of the available options out there in stores. Before you get started you need to understand the foundation of calligraphy and what it is. There are 3 types of calligraphy: Brush pen calligraphy— Which we are talking about today Dip-pen calligraphy— This is the original and traditional form of calligraphy, using a nib and ink.
As the name suggests, you dip your nib into the ink to write with. This is how I started learning calligraphy, and while it is beautiful, it is not the most practical and is quite difficult to get the hang of. So, all three forms of calligraphy are based on the same three strokes.
The downstroke, the upstroke, and the midstroke. They are all fairly self-explanatory. It is when your pen is gliding downward.Thank you for sharing the upper and lower case letters. I printed them out and I really hope to practice this weekend.
