Hi everyone, Mou here with a lettering tutorial using the Modern Calligraphy Kit from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft! I chose a quote that rings true in my heart - Creativity takes courage by one of my most favorite artists of all time, Henri Matisse.
Before we begin, let me list the supplies you'll need to follow along.
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Modern Calligraphy Kit
Watercolor paper ( I used 140 lb cold press by Canson)
And now, let me walk you through the steps.
Use the curve tool from the kit to draw some light pencil lines with the Goldfaber 6B Graphite pencil as shown. These lines will be your baseline for your words.
Write your quote with the same pencil.
Go over the pencil lines with the B tip PITT pen. It is okay to make corrections at this stage. I changed how I wrote 'courage' in the previous step.
Use the curve to add a line under 'courage' to emphasize the word.
In a different font, add the author's name using the SB tip PITT pen.
Squeeze little drops of the highly pigmented watercolor paints from the tubes in the kit onto a palette. Using the waterbrush, add small patches of color around the quote to finish the piece.
I hope you enjoyed today's tutorial and be sure to try out the Modern Calligraphy Kit. With all the pieces provided including a lined practice pad in the kit, you'll be lettering beautiful quotes yourself in no time!
