About This Class


Do you love lettering and now want to dive into the world of watercolor lettering?

Or have you already tried watercolor lettering and want to learn new techniques to take your lettering to a new level?

I love lettering. Soon after I started my lettering journey, I discovered watercolor. Combining my love for lettering with watercolor has been amazing.

In this class, I will take you step-by-step through the process of how to use a brush or water brush with watercolor paint as well as how to develop your brush control and water control.

I will also teach you several advanced techniques to use with your watercolor lettering. I cover blending the watercolor, ombre effect, galaxy lettering, adding gold shadows to your lettering, and one of my favorites - splatters.

Get out your brush and watercolor paints and get ready to have some fun.

I cannot wait to see the watercolor lettering you create with the new skills you learn in this class.
