How to make a paint brush

chinese painting brush Here is a step by step video showing how to make a home made paint brush. If you enjoy painting (art painting, that is), then you may appreciate making your own brushes to suit your artistic needs. I used horse hair for the brush fibers, and a stick from my backyard for the handle. The horse hair came from my sister’s horses. You can make any type of brush you want using this technique. By the way, I just made up this technique, so don’t think I am an expert. I am creating these brushes as Christmas presents for an art kit that I am making for my sister’s kids.

It only takes about ten minutes to make a brush, so get started. By the way, if you don’t know of any horses that needed a trimming, you can use dog hair, cat hair, or human hair for the brush fiber. You could probably go to your local pet store and ask for hair from some of the animals.

    This is pretty cool. I need to find out how to make a much thicker brush. A 1 inch brush that is not round. Kind of square shaped.

    If you use some kind of tube that’s hollow all the way through, then you can:-
    select half the amount of hair, tie ‘string’ around it at mid point, and pull that through the tube to pull the doubled over bristles in nice and compact.
    Also, note that hair has a ‘direction’ of grippyness. So choose the direction for your application. (and doubling the hair over obviously means half one way half the other)

    Sure you can, if you want to drive all the way over there and spend anywhere between 2-20$ on a good brush and then drive all the way back. gas is about 5$ a gallon atm and this brush is free to make. Plus, there’s some things that money can’t buy, this is one of them.
