About This Class

Creating a subtle gradient or ombre effect in your lettering can add beauty, depth, and gorgeous color to your piece. I love blending and find it so relaxing, and I want to share what I know! In this class, I teach you 4 methods of blending using a variety of brands of markers:

  • Blending with colored markers
  • Blending with colorless/blender marker
  • Blending with water and a brush/water brush
  • Blending by picking up color from other marker ink and liquid watercolor/ink

I want you to feel confident as you proceed to blend your lettering pieces, and these methods will give you all the tools you need!

We will focus specifically on blending with markers in this class, but more classes are soon to follow using different tools! Follow me to be notified of when the rest of my Ultimate Blending Series classes are released!

If you would like to take this class but don't know how to letter, check out my other class: Learn Lettering on a Budget! You will learn all the basics of lettering without breaking the bank. I also included free practice sheets in that class! It's a great way to start your lettering journey!
