Paintbrush Poe

Hello all in blog land. It is Cathy here with my paintbrush Poe.
This is how I made it.
First get a cheap paintbrush( I got my from Michael's)
I painted the handle and the bristles with white paint. Then I painted the frame white.

Next I added black paint to the frame when it was still wet so it turned gray in spots.
Then I added black to my paint bristles. Then I rubbed some black paint in spots on the frame. Next I took some purple paint and added it to the bristles. When That was drying I took some gold and rubbed it oh so lightly over the frame to add a hint of gold to it. Then I added it to the bristles. I did add paint to the front and back of the brush and bristles.
So while that was all drying I stamped out my Goth Poe from the new stamps at Lost Coast. Colored it with Copic markers. When the frame was dry I traced the inside oval so I could cut out and add it to the frame.
The last thing I did was glue it all together. It was a fun altered paintbrush to do.
 Thanks for looking. Enjoy.
