Transforming the Ordinary: The Perfect Paints Altered Paint Brush
Have you ever looked at an ordinary paintbrush and wondered how it could be turned into a work of art itself? Well, that's exactly what I did today. In this blog post, I will take you through the creative process of how I took a simple paintbrush and turned it into a stunning piece of altered paint brush art.
To begin this project, I needed to create a solid base for my altered brush. I applied a layer of Polishing Plaster in a delicate shade called "Dove's Wing" to give the brush a unique texture and set the stage for what was to come.
I added some moulds that I had on hand to the paintbruwsh. Using the same polishing plaster, I painted the intricate moulds on my brush. These moulds not only added depth and character but also served as an excellent bonding agent for the upcoming layers of creativity. I also added some clear small glass beads to give it more texture.
The heart of the project lay in the beautiful colors I used. Shimmering acrylic paints such as "Aged Copper," "Northern Lights," “Vintage Mercury” and "Vintage Patina" transformed my brush into a metallic masterpiece. The combination of these colors added a touch of elegance and mystique.
To enhance the overall effect, I took inspiration from the night sky and used chipboards from Scrapaholics. I splattered shimmering acrylics named "Red Wagon" and "Halo" onto the brush. These splatters created a captivating celestial feel, like stars scattered across the midnight canvas.
Another charm to this project was in the careful assembly of laser-cut elements from the "Rouge Collection" by 49andmarket.
By combining different techniques, colors, and elements, I managed to breathe new life into this everyday tool. This project is a testament to the endless possibilities of creativity and the power of imagination. So, the next time you're holding a simple tool, don't be afraid to dream big and transform it into something extraordinary.
