I'm taking a teeeeeny tiny itty bitty break from Halloweening to make stuff for Van Gogh.  I'll be honest with you, I've been playing with Van Gogh since the day I got him.  I carry him everywhere.

The paintbrush furthest from the camera is the paintbrush Van Gogh came with.  Not bad, but very obviously plastic.  The paintbrush next to that is the one I made.  I used a toothpick, and shaved it down smaller using an emery board.  I then used copper tape that I got at a garage sale and some bristles from one of those cheapo paintbrushes that are plastic and come with watercolor sets.  I used a magic marker to darken the wood.  Then I snipped the bristles to make them even, and tada!  A tiny, functional paintbrush.

Happy arting!
