Gradient Brush Lettering

Jessie ChenComment

Hi all!

Today I'm going to be sharing how to use liquid watercolors to do gradient brush lettering. This technique is great for using both pan or liquid watercolors, although it is easier/more convenient to use this method with liquid watercolors. It's a super fun method and I hope you get a chance to try it!
