Altered Brush – Mixed Media

Hi friends, DT member Nandhini Vasandan here!

I am here today to show you how to alter an old brush using Little Birdie Color Splashes and a few other supplies. Hope it inspires you to participate in the ongoing Color splash challenge.

Let us now take a look at how I went about to create this beauty.

I took the old brush which I wanted to alter.  I will be using the following moulds from the store.

I applied white gesso all over the old brush and this is going to be my base to work on.

Then I added textures with crackle paste and few chipboards. Once it was dry, I added a few clay embellishments and alphabet cutouts.

Then coloured it with Color splash Blackcurrant  and  Lemon  Zing  .

I wanted to make a small bottle as my focal point. I filled it with thermocol balls and coloured with Colour Splash Gold Rush.

Then I dry brushed white gesso to tone down the colours. Finally, added handmade flowers and microbeads, and thermocol balls to finish the project.

Here are the list of materials used
