Beautiful Ride Altered Paint Brush

Have you seen the newest Globecraft & Piccolo release? Fun summer designs, gorgeous labels and flourishes! Today I'm sharing a few of the Accents from the Amusement Park Rides set on an altered paintbrush.

Here's what you'll need from the G&P shop:
3D Enamel Gels: Daffodil Pearl, Orange, Rose Pearl, Titanium White, Turquoise
Embossing Enamels: Aged White, Mermaid Tears
Glastique, Gloss

Other Supplies:
white gesso
white modeling paste
small alphabet stamps
glue gun
scraps of fabric, twine or ribbon

My local art store had chip brushes on sale and I stocked up - just for an occasion such as this! You could also use an old brush, too. The older the paint, the more character, right?

Paint the handle with a couple of coats of gesso. You don't have to worry about being neat. Just get it done!

Next, I mixed a bit of the Turquoise 3D Enamel Gel with some modeling paste. Dab it on randomly, creating colored textured. Let dry.

Using the 3D Enamel Gels, add more color to the handle. (I used a foam brush and a cotton swab.) Let dry between colors. (Layer away! The gels are translucent, so overlapping the colors is highly recommended!)

Use the gels to 'color' the Accents. After they are dry, coat with a layer of Glastique.

While you wait for the Accents to dry, melt the Embossing Enamels here and there over the handle and the brush bristles.

For ease and time, I used a glue gun to attach all of the embellishments to the paintbrush.

Stamp and distress the words. Trim and adhere.

I hope you enjoyed today's project! Be sure and stop by again for more G&P inspiration!

Inky hugs,
