Altered Paintbrush with Jen Matott


Finished Paint Brush

Hi!  I have another altered paintbrush to share with you.  I had the opportunity to create an altered 4" paintbrush for Donna Downey's Studio space.  You can read about the project here.   I already had done some altered brushes for CHA Summer 2012 which you can read about on this blog post.  When I had met Donna Downey at CHA, I heard about this project she was starting and it just fit perfectly!  So, I knew I had to do one for her wall.  This is my creation! 



Some pages with stamps and Gelatos.

It just so happens that I did a UStream class on this project on Tuesday, February 19th for Helmar Live.  It goes through the whole process.   I used Gelatos, Stamper's Big Brush Pens and the new Gelato Mist Making kit for this project!

Jen, I like your altered paint brush! Great way to up-cycle. Thanks for sharing your art and technique!

I would love to win any of the gelatos or markers to make something as clever.

This project is so awesome! I would love to try this!! I don't think I have any paint brushes this big, ha! Buying a new one is probably not the point huh. Thanks for sharing.
