Paint streak iPad lettering by Alexis Gentry

Paint streak lettering is my new favorite thing

If you’ve checked out my Instagram stories lately, you’ve probably seen some paint streak lettering. Prior to trying it out, I had seen this technique all over my feed from talented letterers like @ipadlettering and @stefankunz, but I had no idea how to do it. Then Myriam, the brilliant letterer behind @halfapx posted a quick tutorial in her Instagram story. I knew I had to try it out, and I completely fell in love with the technique and now all I want to do is make more of these.

Here are a few I’ve done using the streaky texture technique.
