Brush – Kal recommends a Bamboo brush in size 2 and size 4. These brushes are perfectly suited for brush script – their shape means that they can make both thin and thick strokes. The bristles hold a lot of paint, so you’re able to make long continuous designs.
Paint – You can work with GouacheAcrylic, or even Mister Huey’s. High quality paint materials will offer a better finished design.
Drawing paper – You’ll be practicing on scraps and printer paper, but you’ll need drawing paper for your finished designs.
Paint Palette – Having a paint palette will make it easier to reload your brush and continue making gorgeous script!
