Create professional looking letters on posters and cards with some great tips.

You will need:
  • paper
  • felt tips
  • marker pens
  • sticky tape
Simply tape two black pens together.

They need to be taped so that the tips are level with each other.
Experiment to see what different effects you can make.

In this one, you can see the word "ART".

It's important to make sure that you keep the pens in the same position as you draw.
Once youíve done that, just join the lines between each letter.

Itís a case of looking for the open ends, and closing them up with a line.
Now for the fun bit - colour!

Colour each letter using different shades. Itís also a good idea to use different colours in the different sections of the letters.

When youíve finished, itíll look something like this!
The great thing is that you can have different effects depending on the way you hold the two marker pens.

Here, one pen is held on top of the other.

Whichever way you choose, donít forget to keep the pens in the same position.
Once youíve finished and coloured it in, youíll have something that looks like this.
Here are some other examples of this technique being used.

Itís a really easy way of doing very professional-looking lettering.

You can use it for lots of other things too, like party banners and cards.

Try it yourself!
