I have been pretty busy in the brush making shop and have created a few more brushes including four in a holiday series. These are all available now in my Etsy shop.

I will make a separate post for each brush, but feel free to browse my shop and do not hesitate to contact me with questions and/or comments.

Happy holidays!

This is another brush made with Inferno resin. The first one I made didn't last a day in my shop, so I decided to follow up with another one since this material really is HOT! Choice of knots available

Now for the holiday series. This is a series of brush in what I consider festive winter holiday season colors. Of course, these can be used year round, but I was inspired by the season for these color schemes. Enjoy!

First one of the holiday series is a bit of an outlier as it differs from the other three in shape and scheme, but I thought it made a great holiday brush. The resins are Spring Green for the main body and Crushed Cranberry for the accent ring. Choice of knots available.

I have acquired some new resin blanks from a gent that has decided to get out of the brush making. He poured his own resin and had some supplies left over after his decision. He used up the supplies to pour out some of his last blanks and offered to sell the results to me. I gladly accepted the offer as his blanks are simply outstanding in beauty and quality.

I have been doing some experimentation with the new blanks to develop some shapes for this series. There are limited number of blanks and I am thinking of making them into a series. I have made 5 shapes as studies and would like to hear some comments. The colors I chose for the studies are light and cheery, but there are plenty of dark and vibrant colors in there, so I am more interested in comments on shapes and sizes rather than colors. Suffice it to say the colors and sparkleness of these blanks are amazing. You will want to stay tuned to see them.

Hare is a bad phone picture of the first five (studies of shapes, basically). What appeals to you? Imagine vibrant colors like black and red, with metallic gold, copper, silver, etc.

The height of these handles is about 70mm and the diameter between 37mm and 39mm at the widest part. They are all drilled with 1" (25.4mm) which accomodates a 24mm knot very well. There is ample room for knots up to 28mm, I believe. I want to stick with 24mm for now (final brush is a 26mm brush, so a really good all-around size) as I have many wonderful 24mm synthetic knots. BOSS and Tuxedo to crown these with. But there is definitely room for larger knots.

So please check them out and give me some feedback. These will most likely go on sale in my  Etsy store aw http://www.Love-Your-Shave.com in the beginning of the New Year.

I will get better pictures of these with some knots dry-fitted for a better illustration, but still pictures really don't do this stuff justice. They are mesmerizing.

I am launching a series of brushes called the Swirl Series. They are going to be made with very special resins. This series is going to be limited to about 35 brushes. Some blanks are unique and others have 2-4 similar patterns. Once these blanks are gone, they are gone and no more will be available in the near future. These resin blanks are amazingly beautiful. You are going to want to keep an eye out for the new releases. They are going to be amazing!
Here is the first one. This one is in Blue and Red Swirl. Handle is about 70mm tall and has a knot opening of 1" (25.4mm) in diameter and about 19mm deep. Choice of knots is offered or a handle-only.
