Tip:

Is that brush ready for the trash? If it has a wooden handle then it will make a perfect modeling tool for Sculpey or Miliput. Simply cut and sand the end to the shape you require. Alternatively just trim the remaining bristles to a close crop and you have a stippling brush for dirtying down your masterpiece with powdered chalk pastels.
