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

Short and sweet!!
Great class with helpful instructions but it would've been better if the camera was closer, so I could see the letters clearer.
