When Donna Downey announced that she was decorating her new studio walls with altered paint brushes and accepting them from anyone interested is sending one in, I was so ready for the challenge.
Meet “Barbara Brush”, everyone. She’s engaged to Sherwin. She loves to sing, go for sweeps (walks), loves birds (and occasionally has been known to take a few in from the cold)… and she flies… she does have wings, after all. I don’t know where she goes, but her bristles are all a mess when she returns and she says she only went to visit her friend, “Benjamin Moore”. Hmm, wonder is Sherwin knows about this. Well, it’s Donna Downey’s problem now.
Sorry, off track.
The handle is covered with polymer clay that I textured and baked. The face is also clay. I started with a basic mold face and made it my own by adding cheeks, lip and stretched the nose and jaw. Her eye shadow is glitter glue. I have her a little eyeliner and some lipstick (paint). Her hair is made from jute twine. Wings, bird and heart are also polymer clay. I added ribbon and lace around her chest.
I had a hard time parting with her. Which just makes me want to make another one for the house.
You can see all this series of brushes HERE, on Donnas’ blog. They are so creative.
Well, another work week starts tomorrow. Say it isn’t so. Much cooler weather here and I’m loving it.
Have a great week everyone, and thanks for stopping by.
