Today, I packed up the #14 and shipped it off to Dzia Dzia. He was the one who conceived of it. I just put it into works. I hope to see it show up on some SOTDs on TSD.
#14 arrives at its new home...
Don't forget the bottom half of the handle of the 98.
Here's what I did as a little experiment. The knot is from a 24mm 2 band Vie Long brush that was too small for me.
I filled the cavity with Play Doh for extra weight and topped it with a coin for a level surface and glued the knot in. It was only supposed to be a temporary thing until I decided on a more permanent handle so I only used a rubber cement type glue.
The chrome ring is from the top half of the brush.
9 months later and I'm still using it.
I never expected it to last this long.
