If you’re looking to break into brush lettering, using brush markers is a great way to get started.
With the huge variety of tools available, it can be tough to decide which one to buy. I’ve rounded up all of the markers I currently own to show you what you can do.
At the inexpensive end of the spectrum is the good old Crayola marker. With the pointy tip and a broad side, you can achieve some awesome thick and thin lines in your letters.
(The same goes for the generic Target brand markers too).
Crayola SuperTips give you a thinner line than the classic size, but the marker still comes to a fine point.
In terms of art supplies for grown-ups, Tombow Dual Brush Markers are the best. Lots of flexibility in the tip and a huge rainbow of colors. There’s even a fine point on one end for regular writing and drawing.
There are tons of other brush markers out there in the world, but these are the ones I’ve tried and that live in my collection.
