Resources

Have fun exploring my resource page! I only add companies and products that I have used and can highly recommend. These are my favorites!

Some of the following links are affiliate links, so if you purchase from them I'll receive a little bit of commission, with no added cost to you (which helps offset the costs of coffee and blogging!)

I'll be adding many of my other favorite products here, so check back often.

Brush (marker) lettering

I recommend the Tombow Fudenosuke hard-tip brush pen (shown below)  for an all around pen for smaller brush lettering. (Brush marker lettering, not an actual brush.)  Great for envelopes. In my opinion, it's the easiest to use smaller brush pen for beginners. (It also comes in soft-tip, which some prefer. It's only slightly more difficult to control than the hard tip.) It only comes in black.

I love the Tombow Dual Brush Pens (also shown below) for colorful, larger brush lettering projects. They come in many colors. Perfect for blending and watercolor techniques.




The Kuretake Zig Brushables Dual Tip Brush Pens (below)  are my favorite brush pens for projects that require a more lightfast, archival ink (like scrapbooks, journals, and projects that will be displayed near light.) These have two brushes on each pen, with a lighter and darker version of one color on each. The ink is pigment ink, acid free. Great for brush lettering and coloring. 

The Zig Memory System Marker Set in assorted colors is shown below on the far right. (It has the same lightfast, pigment ink as the Kuretake Zig Brushables.)  It's my dream set for scrapbooks, journals, etc. I particularly love that set! It includes so many different types of markers for all kinds of lettering, in addition to brush lettering, like the Scroll and Brush markers, which are very fun, and the Zig Calligraphy Markers, which have a broad edge, not a brush tip.  I love those too and have a bunch of them, because my first calligraphy style was italic.
