Bedazzled makeup brush
HI! Humans thanks for checking out my project. I hope you like it I've been wanting to do this for a while, it's an original idea I thought up on my own.I always wanted to buy a bedazzled brush set with crystals and glitter I never found one I could buy so, I decided to create my own cool fancy brush! I used an $1 elf foundation brush to do this project and i'm going to make a complete brush set. I hope you all get inspired by this and make your own cool brushes and come up with some cooler ones than this so thanks for your precious time ENJOY Lovelies.

  • Step 1

    For this project I used an ordinary white foundation brush(an e.l.f. brush $1 from the grocery store)

  • Step 2

    I wrapped tape around the silver (neck) part of the brush and scraped the white paint off the handle of the brush with sandpaper.

  • Step 3

    Then painted the handle of the brush with acrylic paint in Turquoise,I used about 2 coats.

  • Step 4

    Once the color dried, I used ultra fine sandpaper to smooth out lumps and lines from brush strokes.

    (Optional)

  • Step 5

    After sanding I applied Extreme Glitter Acrylic Paint in turquoise
    2790. (You can apply many coats as you want I DID!!! ^_^)Once it dried I applied a acrylic spray glaze as a finish which adds a really professional look and feel to it.

  • Step 6

    After drying I removed the tape from the silver(neck) part of the brush.

    then started gluing the crystals one by one half way up on the silver(neck)part of the brush.then I got the Idea to put silver glitter on the rest of the way up to the top of the silver(neck)part.

    and lastly I added a bit of gloss to only the silver glitter part to keep the glitter from falling from the brush and it worked. END
