You’ve done all your lettering on one layer, but now you want to apply a foil texture to part of it and not the entire layer. Don’t worry! You can separate out the words and apply foil where you want without having to worry about recoloring or erasing anything. This quick tutorial takes you step-by-step through the process.
I finally had some time this weekend to release this video about how I do paint streak lettering. If you try it out, tag me on Instagram so I can check out what you make.
I just released a new font! This one is called Break Up Letter and it’s a handwritten style that I developed using my iPad Pro. It’s the first font that I’ve ever released that comes in bold, italic, and bold + italic versions. It includes uppercase and lowercase as well as numbers and punctuation. The zip file you get when you purchase it also contains WOFF webfont versions, so you can embed it on your website.

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.
