How to Use Clementine Sketch

To make this font display correctly, with the beginnings and ends of each word closed, you must begin each word with a capital letter and end each word with the symbol ^.  BUT there are two irregularities: W & V. If a word contains a W, you must end the preceding letter with a ^. If a word contains a V, you must end the preceding letter with a ^ and capitalize the letter following the V.


This^ Is^ W^rong^!

But really it’s right! LOL

Now you know how to use Clementine Sketch correctly!
