Today we’re going to show you a modern and pretty style of script and mixed script lettering that adds depth with blending, outlines and shadows using two of our favorite Tombow Dual Brush Pen colors, 873-Coral and 803-Pink Punch.
- A sheet of Mixed Media Paper
- Tombow Dual Brush Pens: 803-Pink Punch, 873-Coral, N75-Cool Gray 3, and N00-Colorless Blender
- Tombow Fudenosuke Brush Pen
Using Dual Brush Pen Coral (873), letter out your name or any word you want! A little side note: I find mixed media paper to be the best for blending. It’s made to handle multiple layers of color, but it’s also smooth enough to protect your precious Tombow pens!
Using Dual Brush Pen Pink Punch (803), color in the top half of your letters covering the Coral. It’s best to work on one letter at a time. If you fill in all your letters at once with your second color, it will be dry by the time you get to your last letter, making it harder to blend the ink.
Using the Colorless Blender Pen (N00), start at the top of your letter (in the Pink Punch area) and use downward strokes to bring the Pink Punch color down to the bottom of the letter.
Outline the outside of your letters with the Fudenosuke Pen. I use very light pressure when tracing around the letters. Next, apply some pressure to the pen and add thicker lines to all the down strokes of your letters. This will give your letters some depth with a thicker shadow.
Lastly, using Dual Brush Pen Cool Gray 3 (N75), add a somewhat thick line to all the down strokes of your letters to add a gray shadow effect. Here’s a tip: pick either the left or right side of your letters to add the shadow, so they all look consistent.
Here’s what the end result will look like!
