I found that I’d been wrong about horizontal strokes. I drew them curved side facing down, but the more natural curving motion is to cut with the curve facing up, butting frol left to right.

I found also that at this size, many of the letters felt rather skimpy. I might want to fatten them up. Also, I ought to try them with paint and see how they work in the field.
