    I love these brushes and it would be nice to get custom one but like you said brushes go "poof". I have lost over 20 brushes sense I moved here back in july and I was cleaning out from underneath our storage building out back (somebody stacked a ton of wood under it) and what do you know!!!! There was ALLLL my lost brushes. Im going to blame our furry four legged 7 lb pomeranian as my brush thief.

    I love them! What a good idea.
    I don't know what sealant you're using, but have you tried Mod Podge? With more coats it would be a pretty good sealant. You should check the ingredients first, just in case.

    NICE work! You did a really good job! Love the brushes with the paint horses on them, very well detailed! That brakes up the boring'ol plan brushes, keep up the good work, you are really talented.

    I would definitely buy them for the right price that is.

    I try to make them as reasonably priced as I can...but the brush quality I use is really nice (so they hold up, it would stink if the bristles fell out or something like that) and they do take time to make sure each customer is 100% satisfied . Roughly, it's the cost of the brush plus 8-15 dollars for the artwork.

    These are beautiful! I hope you don't mind me asking, I'd like to make similar for myself :). What kind of paint do you use, is it just normal acrylic? Or do you use a type that's more "hearty"? Where do you find such affordable brushes? I've seen plain brushes sold for that price!

    Thank you! These are tons of fun to do and make great gifts for friends. I do a lot of ordering online for brushes, or I will go to my local tack shop and they have reasonable prices for wood-backed brushes. Keep looking sometimes you can find good stuff on eBay. I use craft acrylics and seal with a good non-yellowing sealant for outdoor use. If you paint some, message me with pictures, I would love to see them

    And make sure they are good quality craft acrylics, otherwise you will have to keep putting on more coats.
