It's blending tiiiime!
Let's start with our Goldfaber Aqua watercolor pencils and some Pitt Artist pens.
Using a Pitt pen in a very light color (this one is Warm Grey I), letter your choice of words. This will give you something to "color in" with the watercolor pencils, which will keep your lettering smooth and consistent.
Next, choose your colors! I have the primaries here, plus purple, to make a rainbow effect. Go ahead and color your letters in.
Take a wet paintbrush, and go over the pencil marks. You don't want a soaking wet brush. Just damp enough to turn the pencil into watercolor. Too much water, and it'll get messy. Blend your colors together! I picked the primaries so that I could also get orange and green out of mixing them together, but feel free to pick blues or pinks, or whatever combo you like! If you're worried about which ones to pick, you can always scribble on a scrap piece of paper and blend until you find a combination you love!
Take a Pitt pen in Cold Grey I, and shadow your letters.
Then using the same brush pen, and a small fineliner pen, finish up your quote! Mix fonts! Mix shadows! Mix colors! Just be creative and have some fun!
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 watercolor to brush pens, and everything in between!
