What Do You Use for Lettering?

Post by debranewmanart on Tue Sep 20, 2011 8:01 pm

I've started getting requests for lettering similar to the standard red heart tattoo and banner with MOM on it. Most of the time the lettering has to be really small...1/4 inch high or less to fit on the banner. I find it really hard to do with even the tiniest brush. Is there a secret to this? I find myself wishing there was a face paint Sharpie!

Tiny flat brush works the best for me.

The flat brush is awesome because you can use the tips like a stamp for block letters.
