Oh for the love of a noodle brush

On NGS, we've been challenged to create using a noodle brush, aka a silicone basting brush. Fun things, these. Great for dry brushing and splodging paint everywhere. And very easy to clean up, which was a plus.

In order:
Colormist sprays on glossy cardstock, heated until bubbly. Dry brushed with white gesso.

A wooden box I'm altering. The back of it is painted with brick-red acrylic, then dry brushed with bright red using the noodle brush. It's very hard to see in this scan, but it gave a great faux woodgrain effect.

Resist ink, dye inks, gesso & a top layer of Colormist spray (Electric Pumpkin) applied with the noodle brush. Very subtle, especially on this scan.

Resist inks, Colorwash sprays, overstamping, topped with copper Colormist sprays, again applied with the noodle brush.

Very fun little tool & one I think I'll be using a lot.


  1. These are just great Autumn...I must get a noodle brush!

  2. I love all of these. Looks like I'll have to go looking for a noodle brush too

  3. Very cool stuff Autumn. I particularly love the box you're making the colors are so saturated and beautiful. Thank you for sharing them!
