How To: Write numbers in Copperplate style

Write numbers in Copperplate style

This video shows how to write the numbers 0, 1, 2, 3 and 4 in Copperplate style. Special marked paper is used, with slanted verticals and regular horizontals, so that the numbers are even in size. The number 0 is drawn slowly, showing how the nib rests on the paper and is drawn anticlockwise. Then the number 1 is drawn, and again the up strokes are thin, while the down strokes are thick. The number 2 is drawn in two steps, starting with the top part. Numbers 3 and 4 follow in a similar fashion, each having their own little curls and twirls in Copperplate style. That's it.
