We're still not done with featuring Glenda - the designer and owner of the boozybear etsy shop - and her fab steampunk chipboard pieces by showing steampunk/industrial style projects done by my wonderful DT - each using the same boozybear parts but in totally different projects and ways of using them.
I find the idea thrilling to see how differently the same chipboard pieces can be approached. I hope you do too. ;)

Only two more projects to go - as Brigitte's and mine are still missing.
So today it's time for Brigitte to share her boozybear project with you. And believe me - this really makes me want to alter a brush too now! ;) Enjoy!

Altered paintbrush / Pinceau altéré
Brigitte started with priming a paintbrush...
...with white DecoArt media Gesso. Then she added DecoArt media fluid acrylic paints to create a kind of patina look.
The boozybear cogs, gears and other steampunk chippies were "rusted" with brown, violet, orange and blue paint...
...and then glued onto the brush:
The top of the brush was given a dreamy face cast from a self made mould
and painted with the same colours.
As the chipboard cogs and gears are a bit flexible,
they could easily be attached to the handle of the brush
to create a kind of relief effect.
So cool! I HAVE TO try this too! Your altered paintbrush is just amazing, Brigitte! Thanks so much for the fantastic inspiration! XXX
Our actual January challenge is still open until the end of the month and before we will be sharing the makes of Team B on the 15th, we will also announce the winners and Top 5 of our winter special challenge next week. So stay tuned! And of course we hope to see you play along with us soon (maybe we will see some altered brushes being entered too? Who knows.... ;)
Hugs and happy crafting!
