As this journey with this passion project continues to grow, I am exploring tools for lettering. The Staedtler Lead holder (HB Lead) - This is taking me a bit to get accustomed to, as its slightly has more weight than normal pencils.
Tombow Mono Zero Eraser - allows me to erase between very thin lines with out needing additional tools.
Ticonderoga No. 2 HB - Smooth, and reminds me of when I was in Elementary school
Click 5.0 lead pencil with #2HB lead. A quick tool to run to when the Steadtler is feeling too heavy.
I also have a Artograph light table for when I'd like to practice muscle memory by tracing.
I use regular printing paper, and my printer has options for several types of grids. I use the smallest spacing setting available. I've recreated one in Adobe Illustrator, but you can also use these.
As a reminder I am still very much in the beginning stages of lettering. These tools may change. Next Week I will share with you some of my beginning stages of lettering and what they look like.
Now that I've shared with you the tools I am currently using, I'm interested in knowing about you, are you new in this process of lettering? What tools do you use for your craft and why is it your favorite?
