How do I choose the right pencil for the job?
If you are not sure which of our pencils would be right for you, there are a few things to consider when you are choosing the perfect one for you. If you purchase one of our pencil sets, you will find a range of pencils, graded by their HB. H stands for hardness and B for blackness, and they are used to determine the different shade of black or grey that the pencil produces. An HB pencil is the most commonly used, and this is the pencil that you probably used frequently when you were at school. When you are new to the craft, choosing the right pencil can be a challenge, but to ensure that you use the right one for you, you could create your very own key. This will provide a visual guide so that when you are sketching.
Do you have any tips for calligraphy and hand-lettering?
The most important thing to do when you wish to improve your handwriting is practice, practice, practice and then practice some more. Print off free handwriting sheets from the internet or copy fonts from the computer When you are writing, the most important thing to consider is the stroke of your pen. Strokes that go downwards should be thicker, whereas, strokes that go up should be thin. Ensure that your strokes are of similar thickness for a professional looking finish. If you are writing in a larger font or creating your very own typographic work of art, then we recommend, drawing out your text first in pencil. You will be able to work out your spacing clearly and erase any potential mistakes.
