Hello Tombow friends, it’s Jennie! Whenever someone asks me what product they should get as a gift for someone who wants to start lettering, I suggest the Tombow Advanced Lettering Set. It has items that are perfect for beginner and advanced letterers. I’m going to share with you five things you can try with the Tombow Advanced Lettering Set.

- Marker or mixed media paper pad
#1: Practice Pressure Drills:
The Tombow Fudenosuke Brush Pens are perfects for beginners. I personally prefer the Hard Tip Fudenosuke Brush Pen because it keeps your upstrokes extra thin. Letters are built with these strokes, so it’s very important to practice them before you attempt letters and words.
This technique is amazing! I used the Tombow Dual Brush Pen 373 as the base. At the bottom, I added N15 and on top I used the 685. I moved the color to the top using the Tombow Colorless Blender N00. This isn’t the only one way to blend. There are a few other techniques, like using the Tombow Blending Palette or the Tombow Water Brushes. In this photo, you can see the Tombow Sand Eraser. I used it to erase a small smudge I made while I was lettering.
The Tombow MONO Twin Permanent Marker has two tips. The broad tip can also be used to add shadows but I’m using the fine tip to outline the word. Not only does this make the word pop but it also cleans up you lettering.
I used the Soft Tip Fudenosuke Brush Pen to add shadows to this word. Pick either the left or the right to add your shadows. Also, add shadows at the bottom. You can also add shadows with the Tombow MONO Twin Permanent Marker or a Tombow Dual Brush Pen.
I used the fine tip of the Hard Tip Fudenosuke Brush Pen to make lines and outline the word. You can also create patterns with the other Tombow Dual Brush Pens or even the Tombow TwinTone Markers.
Make sure you add these to your Christmas cart! It’s the perfect gift for someone on your list!
