Pitt Artist Pen - Big Brush

Mixed Media Tin for hand lettering!

Hi friends! Chelsea here to show you how to make a beautiful hand lettered watercolor piece! 

 

The products we'll be using today come from the Faber-Castell mixed media tin. You'll also want some mixed media paper, and painters tape for the edges.

 

First things first, tape down the edges of your paper so you'll have a nice, clean border. Then start scribbling with your watercolor pencils! Here I'm using the light blue, dark blue, purple, and pink.

Next, take a wet paintbrush, and blend the colors together.

Once dry, peel off the tape, and grab your Pitt Artist  brush pen (I used Cold Grey VI 235), and letter whatever quote/phrase you'd like.

Now it's time to add the highlights! Take your white watercolor pencil, and add a small detail anywhere you'd naturally see light shine on the letters, to really make your letters pop.

Chelsea has a not-so-slight obsession with all things lettering. Watching lettering videos is what got her started, and you can usually find her posting videos using every art supply she can get her hands on! From brush pens to watercolors and everything in between!
