Altered brush by Marta Piekarczyk

Today I would like to show you my new project. I love to alter old objects and to give them totally new look. Lately I have found a few old brushes at home - I cannot use them for painting anymore, yet it was a pity to throw them away. So I decided to create mixed-media off the page project.

At first I glued down using hot glue gun all metallic embellishments - vintage clock parts, cogs, ratchets, chain and beautiful element created with Paper Clay and a mould. Next step was to cover everything with white gesso. Than I started to add colors - Art Alchemy Acrylic Paints, Color Bloom mists, microbeads etc.

When everything dried completely, I have added some accents using white gesso.
