About This Class


If you love lettering and want to learn a new style to use in some of your pieces, this is the class for you.

I recently saw several different types of dry brush lettering fonts and thought, "Oh my goodness, I love this."

What is dry brush lettering?

It's a dry brush look which means it is not going to have a clearly defined line. There are going to be some dry areas that make it look textured.

Actually, this is probably the easiest way to get started with lettering. But I have to admit, when I first started to research dry brush lettering, I could not figure out which pens to use and how to get the desired look.

In this class, I'm going to share with you the exact pens and the exact style that I created that works really well.

This is going to be a quick class. It is not going to take a long time for you to master this skill of dry brush lettering. I'm going to teach you the style I created for dry brush lettering, both uppercase and lowercase letters.

Anyone can do it. You just simply need to have the right brush pen.

I'm also going to give you my practice sheets. Feel free to use it to create your own style of dry brush lettering.

So what are you waiting for?

Let's get started and dive into this new style of lettering that you can add into your lettering toolbox today.
