The past couple of weeks have seen a flurry of activity in my Etsy shop, An Eclectic Universe, as my Artist Brushes have been selling almost as fast I have listed them! I’m so very grateful for all the support shown towards these “sticks” as I do enjoy making them…and the fact that there are so many of you out there that like them is incredible. Thank you all!
Currently on my work bench are the makings for several brushes using a couple of gnarly short “sticks” and broom straw. I plan to keep these very simple, just letting the beauty of the sticks and straw say it all. I know one of these brushes will be part of a set I’m making…the other will feature a black horsehair bristle.
I recently came back from a trip to Northern Michigan with a bucket load of very interesting found sticks. (I only use dead falls…never cut from its source.) So I’m gearing to make many more brushes in the near future. When you start your holiday shopping make sure to check my Etsy shop. I’m sure you and/or your favorite artist would totally enjoy one of my creations!
