Watercolor Calligraphy For Beginners


If you love how calligraphy looks, but aren’t sure if you’re ready to invest in a special ink watercolor calligraphy is a great place to start It lets you make beautifully artistic writing with virtually unlimited color combinations And you might already have the supplies you need You can make watercolor calligraphy with a pointed pen or a brush We’ll use a brush in this video You will need watercolor paints, water, a paintbrush, and heavy paper You might also need a palette, but that’s up to you Prepare the paint by adding warm water and letting it sit for a minute or so, so that the colors are more intense Aim for the consistency of milk Mix the colors to the hue you want in the lid from your watercolor set or a separate palette Twist the brush in the pigment to load the paint evenly on the bristles and ensure controlled applying Now you’re ready to write If you’d like some tips on strokes check out the blog posts in the boxes on the screen You will run out of paint quickly When that happens just reload your brush and keep writing The new paint will blend in seamlessly To alternate colors, start writing then add a coordinating color to your brush and keep writing You don’t even need to rinse out your brush if the colors go well together You can also dab colors onto wet writing Use the heavy paper and tape it down to prevent warping Then use a brush to write in plain water When you’ve finished writing Load a brush with paint and gently dab it into the writing do the same thing with your other colors They will naturally meld with the underlying water and each other For an artistic faded effect use a water brush Start with plenty of paint and don’t reload the brush when it starts to run out You can also mix watercolors with water soluble ink fill a water brush with a less saturated ink Using a separate hand dip the brush into the [watercolor] and write the color will come through for a subtle effect To make negative space watercolor calligraphy, write with masking fluid instead of paint or ink When it’s dry paint the background When that’s dry peel or rub the masking fluid off to finish the piece If your brush doesn’t write well the paint could be too thick or have dried out Gently touch the brush to some water to get it writing Try cleaning it or thin your paint out further If you feel like your brush isn’t doing what you want it to try holding it closer to the tip for better control Do you want to learn more about watercolor calligraphy?

    Oh my gosh, I'm so jealous of your control over line weight! I have such a hard time committing to a stroke.

    Also, I was told to never let water sit on the pan of Gansai because it makes them shrink and crack, is that true? I see that's the opposite of what happened here but…..not sure.

    I feel stupid. I recently ordered a few things from your website and I entered the wrong address, so I had to re-enter everything.

    That’s just proof that it doesn’t hurt to double check.

    (P.S: your website is so easy to access and browse. My experience was smooth besides my stupidity…)

    In that first demonstration of writing when she used light purple I was ready to slap her when she mixed white paint with the purple to lighten it. I have been taught to lighten colors with water, not white paint cause the color looks nicer when lightened with water than lightened with white. But then again, I use watercolors for painting and illustration not calligraphy. But red lights and sirens still went off in my head XD

    Iiiiiii, don’t think this woman knows how to work watercolour…
    If you add white it makes it more cloudy and opaque, add more water to get a lighter colour, and don’t use warm water cause it melts your watercolour, sprits the pan with cold water and wait.
