Make a small scale sculpture tied to the history of found objects as art. What is more plentiful in an art room than a well-used brush that may not have been fully cleaned each time? Whether one large brush, or many glued together, they can be used as the base for an interesting mixed media portrait. After the brush handle is cut, Paperclay makes the upper torso of the figure. Finish using small brushes, acrylic paint, and fine tip permanent markers.
