Let's see...I lurked for ooohhhh, about a day before I joined and haven't stopped obsessing over this site since I joined. A technical guy by trade, but an artist at heart....
You guessed it, I'm going to make may own brush. Have a handle picked out and going to get in touch with the lovely folks over at The Golden Nib for a badger knot (there's a huge appeal to me for my first badger to be one I create).
A little teaser on the handle...I picked up a hand carved little wooden beauty on one of my business trips to India that I think is just going to look awesome...can't wait to get started. If you guys are interested, I'll post up step by step.
Any MUST KNOW tips are appreciated!
