Hello and Welcome to my Blog ~ I love art of all kinds. Two of my favorites are polymer clay and paper art. I have shops on Etsy that feature both of my passions. I also love writing my blog and finding artists that have a passion for their craft and feature them. I hope your day is filled with sunshine, laughter and loads of creativity.

Altered Paint Brushes ~ Sandy Prenzi

 I discovered  paint brush art and fell in love with it. 
These are just a few of the pieces that I have created so far and are now
for sale in my Etsy Shop:  

I painted a lavender wash on the handle of this paint brush and embellished it with a cream colored feather and a large iridescent purple bow. I created the face centerpiece out of polymer clay giving the brush an artsy appeal. It is 9" tall by 5" wide and will hang easily on a nail.

Paint brushes aren't used just for painting ~ this brush has been decorated, making it a perfect gift for someone who wants something a little different. Painted a dark purple and embellished with a great big sunflower and double layered lace. It is 9" tall by 5" wide and will hang easily on a nail.

I wrapped the handle of this paintbrush with masking tape and painted it a light green color, I then wrapped purple ribbon around the handle and embellished it with a single pink rose and purple tulle. The brush has been painted with purple and green acrylic paint.

I painted the handle of this paintbrush a soft brown color for a nice contrast to the aqua blue and purple of the polymer clay butterfly centerpiece that I created. A beautiful multi color ribbon actuates the centerpiece and a special tag with the word Hugs hangs from the top and personalizes this creative piece. This brush is 8.5" tall by 3" wide.

Love the brushes. Looks as though you're having a great time. I like the burgundy and "pea green".
