This is a review of the Crayola Supertips Markers and how they work with hand lettering and modern calligraphy. I think that these are a great marker for beginners especially!
These are a bit smaller of a tip than the Crayola Broadline. The end result of lettering isn’t super different in my opinion, so it really comes down to a personal preference of which one you prefer, which one you are able to find for a good deal or if one has certain colors that you like.
These markers also tend to bend a bit at the end so you will notice that you may need to rotate the marker as you letter.
I feel like I tend to prefer the larger marker, but then sometimes I grab the Crayola Supertips and love them so I’m not sure but I think they’re both great options for inexpensive markers if you are able to find them locally. I have actually done a few other videos about these markers so I’ll put them in a playlist and leave the link below as well.
The color combination that I originally grabbed to show you blending was not the best, so I apologize about that but I tried another option to give you another demonstration.
These markers are not water resistant but again, can be used a bit like watercolor if you color them onto an acrylic block and use a water brush or a paintbrush and water.
I don’t know if I’ve ever used these to try a watercolor wash as a background, I may have but i’m not sure but I did think that this little wash here was super pretty and I am going to have to experiment a bit more with that in the future!
Here I am showing you a bit of lettering using some of the practice words from my Simplified Lettering Beginner Bundle and I also did this using the Crayola Broadline markers so if you’d like to see a comparison for sizing purposes.
