It is always good to challenge our skills right? So here i have come up with an Instructable to challenge myself to do painting with a Jumbo painting kit:

Painting Brush

Colour palette

And during most times in lockdown, i have been doing some painting to de-stress myself!

This is possibly something that could be made by anyone, on their own!

Step 1: Supplies : Painting Brush

Supplies, not restricted. And you could use any material of your choice, for any design.

Common supplies:

  1. Strong glue
  2. Cutter
  3. Scissor
  4. Acrylic colours (or any other material to colour for finishing)
  5. Crayons

Paint Brush:

Brush part of modern broom

Any thread(to make outer layer for brush)

Aluminium layered sheets (to create grip surface in brush)

Cardboard pieces

Strings

Jute thread (for body part of brush)

Stick (Here i used plastic stick to act as holding part)

Metal strings, metallic impression on the grip layer

Step 2: Painting Brush : Outer Layer : I Used a Jute Thread to Roll Over the Stick

Step 3: Painting Brush : Outer Layer : Tie the Jute Thread to the Other End of the Stick, to Keep It in Place

Step 4: Painting Brush : Outer Layer (you May Use Strong Glue, If Required)

Step 5: Painting Brush : Metal Layer for Grip : Add a Folded Cardboard Sheet to the Back of the Aluminium Layered Sheets

Step 6: Painting Brush : Metal Layer for Grip : Glue at the Closing Side of the Folded Cardboard Pieces

Step 7: Painting Brush : Metal Layer for Grip : Glue at the Backside of the Folded Cardboard Pieces

Step 8: Painting Brush : Metal Layer for Grip : Fix Them to the Backside of the Aluminium Sheets

Step 9: Painting Brush : Metal Layer for Grip : Tie Thin Metal Strings, to Create Metallic Impressions on the Grip Layer

Step 10: Painting Brush : Brush Part : Trim the Broom Brush Part, to the Required Size

Step 11: Painting Brush : Brush Part : Glue the Metal Layer for Grip, to the Brush Part

Step 12: Painting Brush : Outer Layer : (Optional) You May Use Your Choice of Colour Coating to the Jute Layer

Step 13: Painting Brush : a Close Look!

Step 14: Supplies : Colour Palette

Supplies, not restricted. And you could use any material of your choice, for any design.

Common supplies:

  1. Strong glue
  2. Cutter
  3. Scissor
  4. Acrylic colours (or any other material to colour for finishing)
  5. Crayons

Colour palette:

Colour balls (to make slots in palette for various colours)

Multiple colour tapes

Chart papers

Thin plastic strips

Cardboards

Salt paper (smoothing edges of the plastic balls)

Step 15: Colour Palette : Base : Draw the Outline(of Any Design) With Pencil, Onto the Cardboard

Step 16: Colour Palette : Base : Stencil the Main Layer

Step 17: Colour Palette : Slots : Slice the Plastic Balls, Into Halves Across the Centre

Step 18: Colour Palette : Slots : With Pencil, Draw Outline of the Plastic Balls Onto the Base

Step 19: Colour Palette : Slots : Cut the Part(s) of the Slot, From the Base

Step 20: Colour Palette : Apply Colour to the Cardboard Layer

Step 21: Colour Palette : Finished Colouring!

Step 22: Colour Palette : Smoothen the Edges of Sliced Plastic Balls, With Salt Paper

Step 23: Colour Palette : Glue the Plastic Balls (turned Into Slots) to the Cardboard Base

Step 24: Colour Palette : Outer Layer!

Step 25: Colour Palette : Inner Layer!

Step 26: Colour Palette : Adding Eyeballs, Like Structure!

Step 27: Painting Brush : Making an Additional Thin Brush, for Writing Purpose!

Step 28: Colour Palette : Adding Additional Support, for Keeping the Base Straight!

For additional support to the base cardboard, i have used a strip cut from an unused plastic hanger.

1. I cut the bottom part of an old cloth hanger.

2. Unsmoothened the strip at edges, so as to glue it with the base cardboard.

Step 29: Colour Palette : Hollow Cardboard Cylinder, to Hold the Base Cardboard in Hands!

In order to hold the base cardboard in hands, i have used a thin hollow cylinder cardboard structure wrapped with black colour tapes so that it is alike with the base cardboard. Glued it with the base.

Adjusted the hollow cylinder, to a dome like structure to make it fix with the flat base.

This is used to hold the Colour palette with hands.

Step 30: And Finally!

Here's the jumbo painting brush and colour palette, that could be used for painting purpose!

Step 31: Going Outdoor, to Paint!
