I started with a budget pack of kid's plastic paint brushes and cut most of the handle off, I then wrapped what was left with deli paper painted and stamped with Color Mists and gel medium once dried I then stamped with some gold Krylon leafing paint and sealed them with Crystal Lacquer. Once they were completely cured I drilled holes in the tops and wrapped them with copper wire and beads.
Below is yet another piece I did using one of my alcohol ink backgrounds...I know you all are probably getting tired of these but I've promised myself to try and use up all the samples I made so here you go:
alcohol ink background with glow in the dark star wall stickers from the dollar store, stamping with krylon gold leafing paint and black Staz-on ink and vintage image. I have to tell you I had forgotten the stickers glowed until I walked in last night and saw my piece glowing in the dark, what a kick to see it glowing! LOL
