How To Create The Perfect Brush Lettering With A Crayola Marker

2 Mins read

Let's be honest, how many of us take a look at people on Instagram or Pinterest and absolutely swoon over a few of the pictures of the modern-day brush lettering? There is lots. And there are so many opportunities to make cute ones too!

Wanting to understand something new, I decided that brush lettering would be the one thing I teach myself if it's the last thing I did. I researched a lot of ways to do it and it wasn't until I combined a few techniques that I found one that worked for me. And the best part was, I did not have to spend a lot of money on a special pen or marker to create my masterpiece.

I used a Crayola Marker. That's right, I brought it back to elementary school with this, and I used the thick one.

I'm not the most artistic person in the world, and I struggle to even make a stick person (and I know I'm not alone with that). So when I went to try how to teach myself how to do this skilled art, I was very intimidated. In fact, it wasn't even that difficult. I was more frustrated on why my pretty words didn't look so pretty at first.

So, here is how to do it.

How to Hold Your Marker

Always hold you at about a 45 degree angle. This way, you have access to apply more pressure and get the exact tip and side you should utilize.

How to Do Strokes

Once I learned this method, I kicked myself because of not noticing how obvious it was before. Now, I can't stop noticing it! All upward strokes you make will be thin and all downward strokes is going to be thick.

How to Apply Pressure

When going up don't press down hard, make it light. I often feel fancy after i stroke up. When you go down, use a lot more pressure than you would. Yes, it may cause the marker to operate out fast, but it's worthwhile.

It Takes Practice

Because you do have to learn how to position your hand, the marker and how much pressure to apply, it is quite difficult to achieve this goal. You'll feel defeated but you just have to stick with it to become comfortable and learn to do this properly.

I know what you're also thinking. “Why use a Crayola Marker?” Well, the perks of utilizing a Crayola tool is because it features a flexible head and it also has both some advice that goes from thin to thick. So using your angle and pressure you get the result you want. Plus they are super cheap are available in a ton of colours.

Happy lettering!
