The Glory of Paint Brushes

by baby_dragonz_toes

Paint brushes are quite possibly one of the best items in Neopia! Everyone wants at least one, and some want one of each kind. Me? I admit, I am a paint brush addict. There is something about the look of paint brushes, and the wonderful power they hold to transform a "regular" colored pet into an amazing piece of artwork, that keeps me wanting to buy more!

How can I get a paint brush, you ask? Well, there are several ways to get your mitts on one of these wonderful objects. If you are a lucky Neopian, you could be visited by Jacko the Phantom Painter. Now, Jacko gives out random paint brushes, but let's say he doesn't give you the paint brush you have always longed for. You have two options... Sell the paint brush or trade it for the paint brush you do want.

I would recommend selling over trading, because you never know when you will find a paint brush on the Shop Wizard for thousands less than the going rate, and the extra neopoints from selling the paint brush might come in handy. Which brings me to the next option. You can buy paint brushes from other Neopians. When I first started with Neopets, all paint brushes sold for around 20,000 Neopoints and under, except of course the most wanted brush, Faerie Paint Brush. Yes, even the Fire, Fire, Your Pants on Fire was a mere 20,000 Neopoints (give or take a few thousand).

Now, very few of them sell for under 50,000 Neopoints.Too expensive, you say? Well, try to think of it this way; just look at how great it makes your pet look! Your pet can go from normal red, blue, green or yellow, into a masterpiece with a few brush strokes (and a few thousand Neopoints, of course). Is it worth it? I tend to think so... but then again, I AM an addict.Your next option in obtaining a much desired paint brush is to visit the Tombola and Fruit Machine the once a day that you are allowed. You just never can tell when you will hit the paint brush jackpot with either of these games.

Now that you know how to get paint brushes, you need to ask yourself these questions. Do I want to spend such a large amount of Neopoints on this one thing? Will I be happy with my pet painted ___ (fill in the blank), for at least as long as it takes me to save up for another paint brush? Do I want to use this paint brush to paint my pet, or do I want to add it to my gallery?

Well, now that you know the how, where, and why of paint brushes, what are you waiting for? Go find one!!!!

Happy Paint Brushing!
