WIre Nut painter

In the continuing saga of catching up with the (wire nuts) ghosts of Christmas past we present Wire Nut Painter. This is for my son, who in addition to being a musician is an artist. So obviously...... we had to do a Wire Nut Painter. Here he is, headless. The head sports a beret made out of a .223 cartridge base.

The really hard part of this composition was the paintbrush. As I pointed out in the last post, soldering stranded wire to solid is not easy. In this case I had to solder a brush base to a solid copper wire. I haven't really figured out the thing yet, but due to some circumstances out of range of this blog, I have some ideas. Maybe next year.
