What you need
1. 3-4 inch peace of pipe. PVC or Brass, reducers are best. so you can hang dry and no rust.
2. Get a fine feather pant brush. All you need to do is feel for the softness or toughness you want.
3. Scissors
4. Water proof glue. I used Shoe Goo but epoxy would be best.
5. Washer rings. So you can seal off the end and adjust the height of the bristles.

Step 1:

Undo the paint brush from the base to separate the bristles. 
<p>. . .or you could just go to CVS or Wallgreens and buy a boar brush for 10 dollars. Better yet, order a badger knot off of ebay and make yourself a high quality brush.</p>
<p>THANK.S ive price badger hair brushes &amp; others 100 bucks &amp; up </p><p>if someone uses epoxy use marine epoxy it,s water proff</p>
It would be fun to have a shaving brush that has a different handle (like the brass nutt shown in the picture) However, I strongly reccomend that you do not use the hairs from a regular paint brush for shaving. Shaving brushes need very different properties then painting brushes, and I cannot imagine using a paint brush for that purpose is very pleasant. If you want to make your own shaving brush, buy a knot from online somewhere, this will make your experience much better then trying to make some sort of knot using this material.
you can also find boar brushes for cheap at any fine bakery/cooking shop. this saves $100-$400
This is so freaking awesome!!
