I was inspired by a youtube I watched where an art instructor made a cheap hardware brush into a really nice painting brush. For the life of me I can’t find that link, so if you find it, please let me know and I’ll add it here. It was a short video with him using scissors on the brush. I so loved the idea I tried it on three brushes, and here is a little DIY for you in pictures. These aren’t fine detail brushes by any stretch, but they are fab for pushing paint around.
