Details of swap:
This altered paintbrush swap is modeled after a blog i stumbled across and fell in love with the idea.
One 2" wooden paintbrush (easily found at home depot, lowes, walmart etc. for under $1.00) altered in any way you see fit for your partner ... adding items, painting, adding text ... whatever your heart desires! Get creative though (this is craftster after all); they make an adorable addition to hang on your wall or to put on display!

*Any theme ideas you would love to receive?
*Link to your personal page/s that might help your partner design a brush for you (pinterest, wist, etsy etc)
*ARE YOU WILLING TO HAVE 2 DIFFERENT SWAP PARTNERS; completing two separate brushes?

13  My first attempt at shrink plastic ... in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by downtownmonsters on: May 25, 2010 05:50:19 PM

i drew this little guy in a half asleep state ... but, then again, going to work at 330 am kind of has me in a perpetually half asleep state ...

... i researched a lot on different methods of coloring shrink plastic ... i did this guy with acrylic paint though ...

and i dont think im happy with him on a chain ... i might look into putting him on a ribbon instead ... i don't know.

this whole shrink plastic thing intrigues me though ...
