How to Create Watercolor Lettering with Procreate
Creating watercolor lettering with Procreate has always been a challenge for me. I’ve bought and share numerous reviews of brushes for you over the past two years. I’ve tried making my own Procreate brushes. Nothing really worked the way I wanted them to. So I thought, let’s try and create a process instead.
You see, typical watercolor Procreate brushes made me feel like my iPad lettering colors lacked vibrancy and I didn’t have the ability to make the dark inks bleed into other colors, just like real watercolors.
This process may be more than you want to do to achieve watercolor lettering in Procreate, but maybe you’re like me and you enjoy the soothing process of drawing, coloring, and creating something. If that’s you, then you might just like these new brushes!

The Water Pixels Brushes for Procreate
This is a set of 20 brushes that are used as part of a six step process to build a stylized watercolor look to your letters. These brushes don’t do it all for you. You need to:
- Add Color
- Add the Inner Highlights
- Dark the Edges
- And Apply Textures and Splatters
Plus as a bonus I’m giving you a booklet of instructions that I follow in the video tutorial above to help you achieve that watercolor look to your iPad lettering. And, three bonus watercolor background papers.

Thanks for the cool process! I love splatters.
Absolutely stunning! Thank you for putting these helpful videos together for us!
I bought your watercolor brush set today and followed your video. I did it but my word love using same brush as you looks different. Yours is thicker in some areas of the letter and then thin. Is this achieved by holding the pencil different ways? Do you have a video to teach that? I would appreciate any help. I love the brush set very much and is worth the money!
