How to Create Blended Hand Lettering with Paint Pens Step-by-Step

Below you will find step by step images on how to create this design. There is a full video tutorial after if you are looking for more details or tips!

First, lay out your letters using your colors broken apart. Next, thicken up all of your lines a bit. Your down strokes should be thicker than the up strokes.

Work one section at a time to blend the lettering colors together. To do this simply touch the tips of your paint pens together. For example on the R, place blue on the tip of the yellow then work from the blue section towards the yellow. Work the width of the lettering in small sections. Continue along until you have finished your lettering. I also repeated the process to create fun dots. This will give you dots in all of the colors you see in your letters.
