This Minecraft tutorial explains how to craft a brush with screenshots and step-by-step instructions.

In Minecraft, a brush is a new tool that was introduced in Minecraft 1.20.

Let’s explore how to make a brush.

Where to find a Brush in Creative Mode

Minecraft Java Edition (PC/Mac)

Here is where you can find a brush in the Creative Inventory menu:

Platform Version(s) Creative Menu Location
Java Edition (PC/Mac) 1.20
  • Platform is the platform that applies.
  • Version(s) is the Minecraft version numbers where the item can be found in the menu location listed (we have tested and confirmed this version number).
  • Creative Menu Location is the location of the item in the Creative Inventory menu.

Required Materials to make a Brush

In Minecraft, these are the materials you can use to craft a brush:

1 Copper Ingot
1 Stick
1 Feather

How to craft a Brush in Survival Mode

1. Open the Crafting Menu

First, open your crafting table so that you have the 3×3 crafting grid that looks like this:

2. Add Items to make a Brush

In the crafting menu, you should see a crafting area that is made up of a 3×3 crafting grid. To make a brush, place 1 feather, 1 copper ingot and 1 stick in the 3×3 crafting grid.

When making a brush, it is important that the feather, copper ingot and stick are placed in the exact pattern as the image below. In the first row, there should be 1 feather in the second box. In the second row, there should be 1 copper ingot in the second box. In the third row, there should be 1 stick in the second box. This is the Minecraft crafting recipe for a brush.

Now that you have filled the crafting area with the correct pattern, the brush will appear in the box to the right.

3. Move the Brush to Inventory

Once you have crafted brushes, you need to move the new item to your inventory.

Congratulations, you have made a brush in Minecraft!
