How to make a paint brush

Thursday, July 5th, 2012

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.

Raggedy Sparrow Practice 5 / Chinese Brush Painting Birds Animals Flowers

Tuesday, December 27th, 2011

chinese painting brush With time on my hands I thought I would try Sparrows again.
These are not as short stroked as Yang O-shi’s appear to be. I can only guess, but for now, even being able to see the sparrow on the page before I paint something there is a feat I fight hard to get over.
Painting is not second nature to me though I am told it may be. It’s a beautiful pastime and the root of it all wold be nice to think that someone else in Europe saw my efforts and would like to try their hand as well.

Here are Five Sparrows, painted with traditional Chinese paints and paper, brushes and inks. All Chinese, even the mixing bowls are all authentic Chinese porcelain.
