Tutorial for OTR - an altered paint brush
I have discovered the art of altering paint brushes ... my new favorite thing to alter.
For this altered brush I started out with a 4" (new) paint brush from Lowe's.
I covered the brush handle and bristles with a couple light coats of white Gesso.
Next I gathered my supplies from my stash of things I thought I might use.
Then I painted the handle and metal band with several layers of paint.
I coated the wood handle with a light coat of Mod
Podge and added the tissue paper to the handle.
My favorite part was adding the embellishments.
For me it's a process of finding balance, proportion, variety and harmony.
