 Bespoke Signs - The Sign Painting Academy - 26 Letters Tutorials

From Paul:

The 26 Letters is, as you would imagine, a series of letters forming the alphabet. Within these 26 demonstrations you will be shown a wealth of knowledge! 

The series is designed as a learning tool for people who are already studying Signpainting, who want to take their skills to the next level.

It’s also developed for you if you are just starting out. It’s an an invaluable tool which you can use to fastback your skills, helping you towards your dream of becoming a pro Signpainter!

In a nutshell if you are to learning to paint signs. This is your new encyclopaedia!

The easiest way to learn a skill is to watch an experienced pro in that field demonstrating time served techniques.

Each letter is handpainted using various techniques, tips and tricks which I have learnt over my 33 years of being a signpainter. Some of these where happy accidents which then came to be common practice in my workshop. Most of the things I show you you can’t learn from books as they simply aren’t in them.

All the demonstrations are filmed in realtime with me commentating as I’m painting.
