I want to introduce you to one of my great lettering loves. It's something that I think everyone learning lettering should have, and it makes both your brush pens AND your lettering workbooks last longer.
Are you ready? It's Tracing Paper!
Maybe I'm the only one who gets this excited about tracing paper 🤪 but it honestly is a game changer for hand lettering with brush pens.
Let me show you!
The Tracing Paper Pad that we sell in our shop was created especially for brush pen lettering. I used to use thinner tracing paper that frayed my brush pens and never laid flat on my pages... ugh! But this paper is smoother, sits flatter and crisper, and is more transparent.
What I love so much about the Tracing Paper Pad is that it can make your lettering workbooks last forever! If you clip a piece of tracing paper on top of your workbook page, you can practice that page over and over again without even writing in the workbook. How great is that??
I think this tracing paper pairs so well with our workbooks that I created some bundles where you can order some of our most popular workbooks and have them come with extra pens and tracing paper. So you can get right to practicing as many times as you want! You can find all of our tracing paper bundles here.
Have you tried using tracing paper with your brush pens? I can't wait to hear what you think if you give it a try! Make sure you are following along on Instagram, where I'll be sharing a bunch more about this paper and some of my other favorite papers for lettering!
