Watercolor Brush Lettering - By Nicole Miyuki Santo

When you hear the word watercolor you automatically think of using watercolor paper. Makes sense. However when I started to teach classes, I wanted something that was transparent so the students can use my letters underneath as a guide. I knew that watercolor paper was not transparent so I tried tracing paper and that did not hold the ink up well. Then I went in to my local art store and found Strathmore’s 500 series Marker Pads. From the first brushstroke I made on the paper, I was sold.
