If you need to "paint" on your iPad (or iPhone or iTouch or any capacitive screen), you are currently restricted to using your finger, a sausage, a banana or a stiff Pogo stylus. Now you can make a soft brush easily with a bag of potato chips and some sticky tape.
The foil bags used to bag chips works well with all capacitive screens, so, by turning them into bristles, you can make a soft bristled paint brush, happily painting your next master piece while eating your favorite chips.
Or you can buy one commercial capacitive soft bristled brush for $35 from kickstarter.com.
Step 1: Materials
You will need:
1. A metallic hotel pen from a hotel room
2. A small piece of foil from your bag of chips (I prefer grease-free roasted nuts)
3. An art knife
4. Some sticky tape
Total costs: $0. Okay, you need to buy a bag of chips, but you get to enjoy it while you work.
Step 2: Cut Out the Bristles
With your art knife/cutter, cut out small wedges from the foil.
Step 3: Tape It to Your Free Hotel Pen
Trim the foil to size and tape it to your hotel pen with sticky tape.
Step 4: Paint Away!
BONUS, the other end is also usable, since it is metallic and it will register by the iPad.
Compatible with all paint apps.
