The last few days of the #30daysofbiblelettering project brought a flurry of supply experiments with them. Here is the last page in the journal I made for the project, done with Twinkling H20's. It is Weaver Writing, and I added a shadow with a pencil.
So the journal was finished, but the project still had a few more days to go. This is purple gouache with white added so that it pops on the black paper.
Next, I tried out some Daniel Smith watercolors. I only have three colors, but with the three primaries you can mix anything! I was trying to convince myself that I didn't need the new set of Artist Loft watercolors that I had seen in this video.
I was using a new brush, a Pentel Aquash brush that I have been eyeing for months and is also used in the video .
I weakened, and bought the watercolors. I tried them out in this final piece. And yes, I love them for lettering. Having all of those yummy colors already mixed is perfect for a quick quote. It doesn't make sense to spend more time mixing than lettering. LOL
There was one more day left in the project, but that day brought a jazzy background worth its own blog entry, so stay tuned.
