How to Make Your Own Painting Brush | Step-by-step
In this video you will learn how to make your own brushes in nine steps developed by the Scottish painter Alastair Blain who will perform a demonstration together with his apprentice, Jan-Ove Tuv.
- Hair from a boar, horse or cow
- A branch of fitting diameter
- Bee’s wax candle (or just Bee’s wax)
- Linen thread (shredded from a piece of canvas)
- A knife
- A comb
- A pair of scissors
Step 1: Cut the necessary amount of hair from the fur
Step 2: Comb off excess “woolly” hairs
Step 3: “Glue” the base with a Bee’s wax candle, then let it cool
Step 4: Cut the branch to the preferred length of your handle
Step 5: Cut a thumb’s length of the tip (half its thickness)
Step 6: Shape the Bee’s wax base to fit the handle
Step 7: Attach the hairs using linen canvas thread
Step 8: Make a knot and seal it with Bee’s wax
Step 9: Shape the tip with a pair of scissors (if needed)
