Lettering on the Go: Beautiful Brush Script


Lettering on the Go: Beautiful Brush Script – 1LS1
Linda Schneider

The beauty of this tool is that you can leave your dipped pointed pen at home, carry the brush markers with you to practice, write thank-you notes on location, and write people's names as immediate gifts. People will be amazed just watching you create outside your studio! While we will first focus on lettering in this class, we will also learn some ornate pictorial flourishes that can go with your lettering. With our fast-paced life, there is often little time to practice in our studio. So doing "lettering on the go" will improve your calligraphy while you are sharing your art form and skills with others.

Supplies:
  • Pointed brush markers: one or more small Pentel (SES15-NA) brush markers (recommended colors: light blue, green, red gold and orange) (M97)
  • one warm grey, small-brush, Pitt artist pen for shading (M43)
  • other favorite markers
  • layout paper (suggested: Borden and Riley Boris Layout Paper) (P09-100)
  • pencil (S142)
  • eraser (E13)
Optional:
Clear ZIG Wink of Stella brush (M108)

($3)


M97. Pentel Sign Pen Brush Tip
M97. Pentel Fude Sign Pen Brush Tip Marker
This pen’s brush-like tip is great for quick, fun writing. Linda Schneider uses it for pointed pen scripts such as Copperplate and Spencerian! Grace Song calls it the Pentel Fude Touch Sign Pen and calls it "a great beginner brush pen." Water-based ink. Now available in multiple colors! New lower price!

Linda's comments:
"...resembles the same calligraphic line as a nib with the pointed pen. The Pentel pen is easy to carry in a purse or pocket, unlike so many other brush markers on the market. Wonderful to practice lettering outside your studio without having to carry your pen, ink, water etc. I am encouraging calligraphers to write anywhere, anytime, anyplace, like at restaurants (a thank-you with the waiter's name on it), anywhere on the go, on location, even on an airplane."

Linda's comments on the new colors:

"I love, love, LOVE the new colors of the Pentel Sign Pen brush marker!!!! I recommend them to anyone interested in pointed pen, whether a beginner or professional, to carry one on them at all times while out of the studio, either to practice or to write notes of thanks."

Linda Schneider, author of Designing Faces, Figures, Florals and More: Contemporary Ornate Pictorial Calligraphy (B3209). These markers will be featured in her forthcoming book Script Lettering and Design: Anywhere, Anytime, and on Anything (B3959).

M43. Pitt Brush Lettering Pens.
These brush pens are pigmented, acid-free, and the individual colors are rated for lightfastness, just like your tubes of gouache and watercolor. Because they dry waterproof, you can letter over them without bleeding. Linda Schneider loves using them to write pointed pen scripts such as Copperplate and Spencerian - with a brush marker!
