About This Class

Fauxlligraphy what we call faking a calligraphy look. With fauxlligraphy you will take your normal cursive handwriting and you'll dress it up to make it look like calligraphy.

If you think you can't do this because your normal handwriting is bad, you're wrong. You would die laughing if you saw how bad my normal handwriting is.


All you need for this technique is a writing tool and paper. Later on we can apply this technique to other materials, but to start off let's just use a pencil, paper and for your final piece you can use any marker/pen of your choice.

You can get the Fauxlligraphy kit at TypeKits.co

Great basics class - she explains fauxlligraphy very well and you can get a great start from just this class alone!
Thank you, Andrea...I enjoyed your video lessons. I always say, if I learned one thing or ten, the information was worth a lot... I hope to see more videos from you.
Great beginner class
