To embellish the paint brush I started with sticker strips from the G45 Steampunk Debutante collection. I painted the mini dress form with various colors of Lumiere paints in a mottled fashion to create texture and a variation of color. I still wanted to let the beautiful engraving of the chippies stand out so I made sure to highlight with the copper color. I have to tell you the level of detail in these chippies are amazing. For the large 1 1/2" gear I used more Lumiere paints and then added black and rust inks. I topped the brush off with a dyed ribbon. I hope you all have fun creating.
