Creative Calligraphy Techniques
Letters can be used to adorn all kinds of objects or as an intriguing element incorporated into artwork.
We used a lightbox to trace an elaborate K from a clip art book of ornamental alphabets onto a sheet of Twinrocker. This paper is a little heavy to be ideal for tracing, but its beautiful surface compensated for the slight difficulty involved.
A .01-tip Pigma Micron pen worked very well for the intricate linework.
Once the lettering was completed, we glued the Twinrocker paper to a sheet of decorative paper, then glued that to a canvas covered sketchbook.
Twinrocker is receptive to various media, and could be decorated further with watercolors, pencils or colored pens.
