Hand lettering is enjoying unprecedented popularity as a creative alternative to computer-generated fonts or handwriting. Rather than being seen as a trend, the potential for endless personalization has caught the eye of the larger design world. From wedding invitations to wall canvases, hand lettering has been taking over homes and Instagram feeds alike.
As someone looking to improve your lettering technique, learning the flourishes and embellishments will help you further develop your personal lettering style and create more polished lettering pieces.
Prismacolor Dual-Ended Brush Art Markers feature both fine and brush tips. The fine point lays down sharp lines while the brush is designed for creating thick, thin, or varied lines in one stroke.
Learning the techniques of upstroke/downstroke motions, spacing, kerning, composition and process from initial concept to near completion are the foundation. Flourishes add that final touch, but only if the other elements are in place.
