Love painting on your tablet, but don’t want to fork out money for the ridiculously priced stylus brushes available on the market? We’ve got some good news for you. Margarita Benitez recently figured out how to make a capacitive touchscreen-friendly paint brush of her own and posted up the instructions on instructables. While the end result isn’t as polished looking as those styluses you can find on the market, it’ll only cost you a few bucks, and less if you already have brushes and the material lying around.
All you need are needle nose pliers, super glue, scissors, a cheap paintbrush with a metal bristle handle with an edge, and conductive thread. The instructions don’t seem too difficult, though you’ll definitely need a lot of patience to get the job done. If you’ve got the time and you’re interested in creating your very own tablet brush stylus, check out the instructions at Instructables. And if you do attempt to make one of your own, let us know how it turns out.
