Natural Art Brushes: Supply List

Supply List

Many of these supplies can be found in your garage or basement. Start there first. I have listed what I use but whatever you have will work. If you don’t have things like a drill or sander perhaps a family member or neighbor could help you out.

Branches (take a walk and look for fallen branches with some interest)
Hard bristle brush for cleaning the branch (any brush will do as long as the bristles are stiff)
Box cutter/utility knife with an angled blade for taking off bark
Xacto knife
A saw of some kind (band saw, jig saw, or hand saw to cut the end of the branches clean. If this is not available then you can sand the end smooth)
Sander (if you don’t have one use sanding block)
Sand paper
Sanding block (if you don’t have an electric sander use this)
Dremel (use if you have but not necessary)
Soft cloth
Drill (there are many drills out there at different price points. If you don’t have a drill at home shop around for one that would work for you or perhaps a neighbor could help)
Old brooms or large paint brushes
Feathers
Natural elements(elements from outside in nature or man made to use as alternative brushes)
Lineco neutral ph adhesive
Wood burning tool (there are so many options for wood burning tools. The one that is linked is a basic but there are many other options)
Embellishments (copper nails, u shaped nails, leather (an old belt would work), twine, jute, rust, dyed fabric. Shop your garage, basement, thrift shop, and craft area before buying any embellishments)
Wax (clear paste wax)
Hammer
Old toothbrush
Darning needle
