@kellycreates #brushlettering #brushcalligraphy Learn about brush pens, favourites, best for beginners,

One of the most common questions I get is about brush pens and which pens are best for beginners. So I decided to make a video that explains the different brands of brush pens I recommend, both large and small brush tips that can be used with my tracing guide worksheets.

There are many more excellent brands that I haven’t covered here, and I will probably do so in future videos. There are so many brush pens and so little time! If you have a specific question about a brand, leave a comment or send me an email.

Here is the video. You can also click HERE to watch it on YouTube and subscribe to my channel so you don’t miss out on future tutorials. Below the video are the affiliate shopping links if you are interested in purchasing any of these pens.

Here are the pens I use in the video:

    Wouldn’t ZIG clean color brush markers fall into this category? Seems They are very popular among you designers so wondering why not included. Thank you for your work and sharing.

      Janet, there are lots of different brush pens I didn’t include, and the Kuretake Zig Clean Color brush markers are very nice. I didn’t include them because the brush pens with actual bristles are more challenging to use for beginners. But I do love them!

    YOU ARE BY FAR MY MOST FAV! WHEN I STARTED I ONLY USED THE TOMBOW, I LIKED THE SOFT TIP. I ALSO LIKED THE PENTEL TOUCH PENS.

    SINCE I HAVE GOTTEN SO MUCH BETTER, I CAN USE ANY PEN NOW AND I LOVE IT. I FEEL LIKE I PRACTICE MORE THAN I WORK! LOL

    THANK YOU!

      Thank you for your kind comment! A lot of brush pens only cost a couple of dollars, depending where you live. But I will do a video about faux calligraphy which you can use with any pens. Coming soon….
