In this post I’ll be teaching you how to easily paint lettering on your artwork.

All you need is some water soluble crayons(pastels would work too), and a water brush.  You may be wondering what those are and where to get them.  I’m here to help with that, too!  I’ve included my affiliate links for your convenience, and when you do purchase through that link I earn a small commission at no extra cost to you.

Water Soluble Crayons or Pastels

These are water soluble little sticks of pigment that have the look and feel of a regular wax crayon.  This makes them easy to write or color with.  Then you add water with a brush which basically liquefies the product making it look like you painted it.  They’re very easy to use!

Water Brush

This super handy tool is one of my must-haves for any creative person.  It’s a nylon tip brush with a plastic barrel  which you fill with water, so it’s self-moistening.  There are different sizes available, but I like the large one the best.  I show you exactly how to use it in the video.  Easy, easy, easy my friend!

Grab your tools and lets get started.  Here’s the short video showing you how to easily paint lettering.  If you have any questions or comments please leave them below.  Oh, and if you use this technique please share a photos with me on my FB page @ArtfullyStained.
