those are awsome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! love the cat! love the queen! what does the base look like under the dress? is it the handle with a polymer leg to make it stand up?

I cut a half circle from the vinegar jug. then curled it into a cone. I ended up punching holes and lacing up the sides to keep it together. Then the paintbrush handle just dropped in from the point of the cone (with a bit more cutting). I drilled a hole through the cone top and the paintbrush and laced some more. The ruff is also cut from the vinegar bottle and covered in lace. I also drilled through the front bottom of the ruff and laced it to the paint brush. The arms are thin dowels with the hands glued to the ends and wired on, padded and covered with fabric. It was fun trying to figure it all out and make it work. Used up alot of little lace and fabric scraps.

Why, yes it is! I couldn't resist - one of my favorite things you have made (next to my awesome bird brush!). I did try a polymer clay hat but yeah, no way was I going to match your skill.

Glad you liked it!

Oh the little top hat brush is adorable!!!

Guess who also received today from Smmarrt!  Unfortunately, I packed my camera for my trip!  I think I can get at it fairly easily, so I will take pics tomorrow before I go!  I love your artistic style...the brush is just gorgeous and fits with my love of gardening!

I received my first altered paintbrush from moniqueramsey and she is such a diva (the brush that is, well moniqueramsey is too). All dressed in red and feathers and ready to go. The details are wonderful. And a great little beaded hanger. I can't wait to hang her in my craft room. Thank you so much.
