Steps to follow:
In a store, buy a small wooden towel…those individual towels to put the plate and the cutlery on. Choose one with thin wooden sticks.
They are found in all colors, but the tone of natural wood is the most authentic.
In a grocery store, buy a thin elastic. Measure the length of the small towel and buy 5 times its length.
In the top half of the towel, pass the rubber between the wooden zigzag sticks in order to cross the towel from one side to the other.
Repeat the same in the lower half. Now with the towel open, you will see that you have two rows of elastics that match up and down.
Enter each brush between two rubbers, leaving the bristles up. You can also keep your pencil.
To insure wider brushes and spatulasgive more width to the rubber bands at some points of the zigzag.
To finish, sew a leather cord or ribbon at one end. So when you roll up the towel, you can turn it around several times and fasten it so it won’t open. Before storing your brushes, it is advisable to clean them first.
