decided to do a DIY and it worked out pretty well
I couldn't find any of the many paintbrushes that I had purchased for a project I was working on this morning when I came across a popsicle stick and decided to do a DIY and it worked out pretty well.

    Step 1

    Cut a strip off of the old sock. I made mine about an inch wide.
    Apply Glue to the stick and attach one end of the sock strip then continue to wrap around the stick until you come to the end.

I painted the disc of the "Starship Enterprise" project with the brush and it was a smooth surface the texture of the sock didn't really have much of an impact.

When I paint other items with the brush, I will note it here.
