Miniature scale brushes with bristles are hard to find, and many are badly out of scale. They really aren't hard to make. There are two sets of instructions for bristle brushes posted on the miniatures site. These instructions show you how to make a dolls house scale hand mirror and hair brush from polymer clay for a traditional lady's dresser set. You can change the styles to suit your setting, and you can make them using several materials although these instructions use polymer clay.
A second set of instructions shows you how to make wooden based bristle brushes, useful for brooms or house maids floor cleaning brushes, deck swabbing brushes, or brushes for model horse tack. grooming kit.
