I have created two similar, but different brushes. I was kind of taken with the beauty of the combinations produced, so I went with some experimental techniques.

Here is the first one. Black Olive resin on top, Renaissance on the bottom and Crushed Cranberry (red wine) for a ring accent. I have cut the bottom part in two and flipped the parts end for end to obtain a sort-of a Yin-Yang effect. I thought it worked well in this case. I inserted a thin black line to delineate the transition between the halves. This piece is offered with a choice of knots: BOSS, Tuxedo, TGN two band or Elite Manchurian.

Second brush is more traditional with no vertical splits. Resins are: Golden Black on top, Renaissance on the bottom and Crushed Cranberry (red wine) for the ring accent. This one is also offered in choice of knots or as "handle only".

Nice brushes. I was just wondering how you glue your wood and resin brushes together. Do you just use epoxy ? Is there a special way of fasten them ? I saw that the golden nib was doing that quite some time ago. I have not tried one yet. I have tons of woods but short on resins. Nice work . carl

I use 30 minute epoxy to glue the pieces together. Wood to wood, wood to resin, it all works great. I make sure my cuts are square, otherwise you get wobble line at the junction.

Try it, you'll like it.

Thanks alot, I use 5 min. epoxy on most things and have good results, i guess i was worried about the end to end joint on such a wide item and then exposed to water. I will try a few and see how it goes. Carl
