YouTube is one of my favourite websites. On the weekends I can get lost for hours in video upon video. One type of video that I find especially interesting and mesmerizing to watch, is hand lettering videos. My Pentel Aquash water brush is my favourite lettering tool and I’m sure you know by know that I adore brush lettering. Today I rounded up some of my favourite video tutorials concerning brush lettering with a water brush.

A water brush is a brush with a synthetic tip and a water chamber. Water is poured into the chamber and the brush is dipped into watercolour paint. Or, instead of water you can pour ink into the chamber. These water brush lettering tutorials are very helpful for beginners so if you’re just starting out or would like to get back to basics again (something I love doing), you’ll love these YouTube videos.
P.S. Would you like a free brush letter practice sheet?
Favourite water brush lettering YouTube tutorials
These YouTube tutorials are great, but what I found helped me the most is a short online class. I took the Waterbrush Lettering Essentials (affiliate link) class from Teela Cunningham, and LOVED it. She shows how to teach yourself lettering using three different methods and how to create watercolour blends. At the end of the class you create three different cards that you can send to friends and family. Click on the image below to see the class trailer.
