SUPPLIES I RECOMMEND FOR THIS HAPPY THANKSGIVING PRACTICE SHEET

Here’s what you’ll need to put these worksheets to good use. I want to make sure you have the right tools, so you’re successful with your practice and avoid some frustration.

Paper: 

  • HP Premium32 Paper. I recommend this paper because of its higher quality, which is excellent for your brush pens. Using regular printer paper will shorten the life of your brush pens.
  • Tracing paper and put it on top of your worksheet to practice. This way, you only need to print the sheet once and still practice several times.

Monoline pens:

The Faux Calligraphy part of the worksheet can be done with any regular pen.

Brush Pens (Small Tip):

The second part of the worksheet is for small brush pens.

CALLIGRAPHY PRACTICE TIPS

As you’re using this calligraphy practice worksheet, keep in mind the tips below. These will make you make the most out of your practice. For more practice tips for beginners, check out this blog post and this other post will be helpful too.

  1. SUPER IMPORTANT: Slow down! Take your time when you’re practicing your calligraphy. Doing calligraphy is not meant to be fast. Going slow will help you get better letter forms and sharper strokes.
  2. Date your worksheets! This is a great way to see your improvement. Refer back to your older sheets often. Especially when you start to get into the comparison trap or when you think you haven’t improved in your calligraphy journey. We are our worst critics! And often forget to give us grace and celebrate our accomplishments, no matter how small they are.
  3. Use light pressure for the upstrokes (when you’re moving the pen upwards) and heavy pressure for the downstrokes (when you’re moving the pen upwards).
  4. Find a comfortable position and take breaks if you need to.
  5. Lift your pen between each stroke as you’re practicing the letterforms.
  6. Adjust your page and posture from time to time.
  7. Don’t forget to slow down! I know I’ve already said it, but we often tend to forget
