You may think you need fancy tools to do calligraphy but this isn’t the case, with this type. You can use pens you have around the house or buy these cheaply at local shops. The only thing you must make sure is that they do not have a flexible nib for faux calligraphy.
You may have seen people on social media talk about the ‘basic strokes’ when doing calligraphy, don’t worry if you haven’t that’s why we are here, to learn!
The basic strokes are what make up every letter in the alphabet, you might be thinking ‘what you on about?’ I totally get it but it does make sense don’t worry and in the long run will make your calligraphy much better if you take the time to learn these.
If you haven’t practised these before, head over to my ‘basic stroke’ free worksheet and practice these too.
Putting it together:
Once you have an idea of how to put the letters together using your basic strokes and have understood the rule of adding weight to your ‘downstrokes’ you can work on your letters and begin to create a faux calligraphy alphabet.
Head to our FREE worksheet and try the full faux calligraphy alphabet.
