Modern calligraphy tips and techniques
Calligraphy is a timeless artistic style of writing that dates back to ancient times. Though our writing styles have evolved throughout the centuries, the design statement that calligraphy creates keeps the style relevant today in the art world. Often referred to as hand lettering, modern calligraphy has grown into a trend. Learning how to hand letter can be intimidating, so we at Faber-Castell created the Modern Calligraphy Kit to get you started.
Our Modern Calligraphy Kit includes everything a beginner needs.
The products included are four Watercolor Paints, three Pitt Artist Pens®, a Goldfaber Graphite Pencil, and a Mini Water Brush. Beyond products, tools and guides are provided including a practice pad, envelope template, curves template, and a ruler.
Every product in this kit is the high-quality, best choice to support beginners learning hand lettering and calligraphy.
Watercolor paints specifically created for this kit are provided in yellow gold, red violet, emerald green, and cobalt blue. These vivid colors flow smoothly and are easy to use when getting started with watercolor calligraphy techniques. The black Pitt Artist Pens provided in brush nib, soft brush nib, and 1.5 bullet nib are designed for art such as hand lettering and calligraphy. Our Pitt Artist Pens are made of quality India ink that is waterproof, lightfast, archival, and won’t bleed through paper. The Goldfaber Graphite Pencil provided is a medium-soft lead (HB) and SV bonded for break resistance.
Along with the hand lettering tools included, a 30-page design guide will inspire beginning artists through introductory tips and techniques.
Learn how to use your brush, master basic strokes, connect letters, add flare, and more. Once you are comfortable with your newfound modern calligraphy hand lettering skills, our design guide provides inspiring modern calligraphy projects including watercolor quote art, modern calligraphy wrapping paper, and creating gallery wall art.
This kit also provides an exclusive series of instructional videos mirroring the techniques shown in the design guide.
The instructional videos showcase calligrapher, Kimberly Shrack and guide you through the art of Modern Calligraphy. Kimberly is an artist who specializes in modern brush and pointed pen calligraphy, with an emphasis on illustration.
From product to practice, the Modern Calligraphy kit provides the best introduction for beginners interested in mastering the art of modern calligraphy and hand lettering.
