In China: Man makes world's largest paintbrush.
A Chinese artist has been recognised by the Guinness World Records organisation for making the largest paintbrush on Earth.
He Wenjun claimed to have made the 12ft brush out of the hair from the tails of 300 horses and revealed that its 115lb weight almost doubles when it soaks up ink, Metroreports. Wenjun said: "I am very proud to be the new Guinness record holder. It took me a year to make this brush, and nearly another year to learn how to control it."
There's a fine line between a giant paintbrush and a mop.
