Dot letters are so easy to do, and if you make the letters uneven and tilted on purpose, you get a great result every time!

Practice on a piece of paper to get the feel of it and space out your letters

use the tip end of the brush handle, the bigger the tip end, the bigger the dot

I picked up some inexpensive pillows, 2 for $20, they had white dots already on one side and were plain on the other side [Home Goods]
