English script lettering is a spiky, graceful way of writing that evokes images of 19th-century England. While this method of writing may look difficult, it is, in fact, easy to do if you have some patience and an artistic eye.
Things You'll Need
- Thin Sheets Of Paper
Find an example of English script letters that you like (see Resources).
Take a thin piece of paper and cover the alphabet you have selected; make sure the paper is thin enough for you to clearly see through to the letters.
Trace the alphabet with a pencil several times.
Using a fresh sheet of paper and the original alphabet as a visual guide, slowly and carefully draw the English script letters by freehand.
Write words using the letters. Use a variety of words so you can practice the entire alphabet.
Repeat your tracing exercises if you feel your freehand work does not look enough like English script lettering.
