Very nice!

I actually drew up several gnome ideas because I also thought the pointed brush tip looked like a gnome hat!  I do love what you did with the brush part!   Adorable...and most probably, an idea I am going to steal for the future! Grin

Thanks so much, Tesa!! - I love my little bird brush. Now I just have to add a hanger and put it up on the wall with other Craftster goodies.

like your bird brush teag! i have to try that paper clay stuff! i just recently bought some polymer clay, i dont think pb's can be baked but i saw the first altered pb on here that they used polymer clay and it is awsome, i think they glued it on then painted so i am going to try that king next! i love how with paperclay you can sculpt all the way around the brush! great job! especially love the feathers! did you but the bristols to point them or stick them together for points with clay?

Smaarrt So glad you liked him/her/it, lol

Thanks arista83 I used white glue to sculpt the hair,aloowed it to dry completely then painted the bristles'

 You can use polymer clay on the paintbrush as long as the bristles are not plastic, I use the two clays interchangeably.

Lately I have been using paperclay because it's easier on the hands (I have rheumatoid arthritis, polymer is a much stiffer clay, there are days when I just can't manipulate polymer clay on those days I use paper clay)
