UCA MAY MEETING. . .2018
At our UCA Meeting on May 19th, we were instructed in the art of pointed brush lettering by two pros in the skill––Erika Paulsen and Melissa Esplin. Erika began the instruction as she explained the process.
Melissa showed the fine-points of this lettering style. The handouts were very helpful as we experimented with the cone tipped Crayola Markers which come in so many brilliant colors. These were amazing to use and quickly mastered by all the participants in the class.
Those in the class began thinking of all the things they could do at home with these markers and the skills learned this Saturday.
We graduated to the fiber tipped brush markers manufactured by the likes of Tombow, Le Plume, Zig, Faber-Castell, etc. These were fun to use. It was helpful to have tracing paper so we could trace over the handouts with our tools.
It was a delightful day, with everyone busily working at their papers, following instruction and creating lovely letters.
At the end of the day, Melissa demonstrated how to marble on paper with Sumi Ink. It was exciting to see the various patterns that were created by this process.
