Here is the finished project:
I began with a paintbrush which I covered with tissue paper and then painted with acrylic paint. I used brown, blue and white paint to get a verdigris patina effect on the paintbrush and on the chipboard.
I used some small cogs, a gorgeous steampunk butterfly and a banner from the Twiddleybitz range as well as some metal cogs and clock hands, a prima clockface and a small metal handle.
Here are the assembled and painted chipboard pieces.
These were attached to the paintbrush and I added some more metal cogs on the butterfly and some cogs and clockhands as charms to hang from the bottom of the paintbrush. I threaded a ball chain through the top of th paintbrush added a metal gear and the piece was finished. This was such fun to make and the Twiddleybitz chipboard is just gorgeous with such fine and intricate cuts. I hope you will check out the range that Jo has on offer over at Imagine If.
