How to Create Chalkboard Lettering

  • This chalkboard slate is 12 x 8 inches which is really close to the size of my iPad Pro (12.9″) so I used it to sketch out my idea. The key is to figure out your design first.
  • Then, I freehanded my design onto the slate using the Generals Chalk pencils until I was happy with the placement.
  • Pump the Chalk Marker to get it started and begin going over your design.
  • Clean up using water and a q-tip.

It’s really easy! You could also follow this method.

  • Today I'm going to show you how to make chalk lettering art in Procreate. The Procreate app has unlimited possibilities for your brush lettering artwork. Let's stretch those possibilities and create some digital chalk art like you would in other popular programs like Photoshop.
  • I've had numerous people ask me about how I am using Procreate on iPad Pro to create brush lettering that I do for my Friday Brush Lettering videos. I decided to create a video to the basic gist of how you use it and how the software works.
  • I love this fun graffiti effect in Procreate. It's easy to recreate and can take your lettering to a new level other than the boring flat styles. Create a gradient spray painted look and a fun 3d shadow with splatters of paint for your iPad Lettering this week.
