When recently shopping for an eyeliner brush, I was appalled at the prices - $20 for a tiny brush?! No thanks.

This is a quick and easy DIY project, transforming an art store brush into a custom eyeliner brush. 

Step 1: Gather Supplies

You will need:
  • 1 brush. I bought mine at Utrecht for only $4. I bought a synthetic blend brush, designed for use with oils & acrylics, filberts. It's fibers come to a small, flat, squared tip. This was totally bought on preference! If you would prefer something with a finer tip, by all means grab that. Just make sure the fibers can work with the type of eyeliner you use.
  • small saw
  • Sugru (this stuff's amazing!), or polymer clay
love this! i need a eyeliner brush too! can't wait to make! :)
LOL! perhaps AbstractDragon could enlighten us as to what a jeweler would possibly need a Coping saw saw for. obviously you dont have a clue as to what a coping saw is for. or you wouldnt have made such a ridiculous comment.

Great instructable! I have a small dish of water with a tiny tiny bit of soap in it when I work with Sugru... I dip my fingers in it every so often and then it doesn't stick or dye my fingers.
Nice instructable. Great pictures.
