Show off your creative skills in front of your loved ones with some custom made card or design frames & posters for your home with the art of calligraphy.
To learn basic calligraphy, all you need is:
- Graph paper or any lined paper for guidelines.
- A calligraphy pen / if not any sketch pen, dark pencils (4B / 6B) will do.
In calligraphy, the basic skill to learn is to form thick and thin lines. For this, position your pen and move upwards using a light pressure/hold on the pen. Coming back downwards use a heavier pressure (you need to push the pen a little) and it forms the thick line.
Practise these thick and thin strokes. Remember, you need to achieve these strokes in a fluent style. Try different alphabets and numbers as each has a different curve and line, giving a good balance of strokes.
Remember Step 01 and 02. Now try writing sentences and quotes together and apply styles to the alphabet styles. You can also try cursive or joined-up handwriting, lower-case, upper-case and also regional languages.
Now go ahead and make a card or a poster with your motivational quote in it. Its that simple. So get on your creative hats and be a calligraphy expert.
