This is a quick and easy DIY project, transforming an art store brush into a custom eyeliner brush.
Step 1: Gather Supplies
- 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
Step 2: Saw Brush
Clamp brush to workbench, and saw. Should be a quick and dirty cut - No need to worry about sanding off the base as you'll be covering it in Sugru/clay.
Step 3: Sugru
Not only does this Sugru splinter-proof your brush, but it doubles as a counter-weight so your lines are smoother. Awesome!
Allow Sugru at least 24 hours to cure.
