Retouching Your Original Lettering
Julie Wildman

Online Class
May 23, 24, 25, 26 2022
11am–1pm CDT

In this class, we will learn tips for retouching your hand lettering to achieve a cleaner look on your original work.

During the first three days of class, I will share how to clean up rough strokes; adding thickness to specific areas; and how to clean up mistakes or places you want to re-do. On the fourth day, we will analyze student work (sent prior to class) for tips on how and where to do retouching.

PLEASE NOTE: This class will NOT use Photoshop or Elements for digital retouching. We will focus strictly on retouching original pieces.
