You cannot deny the fact that knowing how to create your own paint is uber cool. In fact, there is mention of an artist who is now 100-years-old and used to rely on whale wax for creating her paint mixtures. However, the impressiveness goes up by a factor of a hundred when you know how to make your very own paintbrushes.
The video is quite simple, and by the end of it; you would have learned about how to create paintbrushes. You will have to, however, befriend an animal. But don’t worry; it is all proper and jovial. What really sets this tutorial apart is the fact that every item that is needed for making a paintbrush is quite readily available in your home’s cupboard or can be bought from the nearest Home Depot without breaking a sweat.
You will need some dirt along with a piece of carved wood – this piece of wood will end up becoming your paintbrush – along with some melted tin. With all of these items available; you will have a sheet-metal encased wooden paintbrush in no time at all. There is a bit of hammering that is involved in creating a smooth and thin metal cover, but it can be done easily. For the brush end; you will need horsehair. All that you need to do is to cut the hair strands into equal lengths and then tie them together. Once you have done that, simply place them tightly and neatly into the metal cover while making sure that it has been snuggly attached to the wooden component of your brush.
The final act is to have the horsehair dipped into corn starch for making sure that it remains in shape. Check out the video below and let us know what you think of it!
