Sign Writing Old English


Freehand sign writing Old English script at
The Robin Hood Inn. By Alexander Sylvester Fritz an artist based
on the Costa Del Sol Spain. I was quite new to sign writing when I did

  1. Thanks, its a lettering brush, a synthetic one I got from the paint store. I bought some good natural hair sign writing brushes from ebay ´chisel edge´ meaning they not pointed at the bottom of the bristles, they are good but I would like to buy some more synthetic ones too as I feel the bristles are a little harder and it seems to work better for the old English text

  2. What kind of brush would you recommend for italic work? I have been making hand painted signs using stencils and tracing fonts with carbon paper. Very time consuming. I've been a calligrapher for 25 years and want to apply it to brush lettering. Thanks.

    It sounds like you been lettering a lot longer than me, I should be asking you for advice. I use a chisel edge brush and find the synthetic one is a little more stiffer and works well for both normal and italics. sorry for the late reply

  4. Fantastic lettering . I have just bought my first lettering brush last month and I am practicing. It's not as easy as it looks.
