I decided to make useful tool for my art from self drying clay. It is not perfect, but it does it`s job pretty good. Very helpful when you need to put down your brush, when it is in paint. I always been frustrated, seeking for spot to put it, on the top of palette or paint is not comfortable or especially, on my art, it would be destroyed.
So, I got a pack of this clay, divided on half and made 2 brush rests, one for me, one for my friend. I made a shape which I need and let it dry, it took 2 days. I picked colors and painted them. I did not think a lot, there were a few colors, almost empty, so, I decided to finish them. I used acrylic paint, it dries fast and it has solid nice colors. Let it dry again and it is ready to use.
I tried that useful tool already and happy to say, it works good, comfortable and very important, I made it myself. I seen at the stores with art supplies this brush rests, but they cost quiet expensive, as for my brush rests, I spent so little money on it and made it, how I want.
I hope this post was useful for you, waiting for your brush rests, if you decide to make it, write a link below on yours, I gladly will check it and make my comment.
