in reverse order

since this is a blog, you have to go to the very bottom and read them in reverse order. eventually, there will be pages across the top where you can read chunks of information in a logical order. this is all free posting, so, maybe that is why it has to appear in reverse order.

Flourish No. 5

These caps are all built off a clockwise loop. You may keep it as a spiral (open) curl or you may have it cross over.

The W in the top row is a sad tear-drop shape. I left it in so that you could compare it to the others. Avoid the tear drop shape. It is sad and droopy. Keep all your curls nice a fluffy and round. Think of a big fat cinnamon roll. Yum.

Flourish - No. 4

The next set of letters. These all start with a loop that is made counterclockwise. The loop may be open or overlapped.

There is a second variation called a Spencerian loop because it was inspired by Spencerian. It might be the easiest loop of all. but, you should try all of them and see which ones feel the best to you.

This started as lessons in flourishing, but evolved into a set of caps that have some flourish.
