The recipe has harder to get materials since the alteration.

Since the recipe for the Brush in Minecraft has changed, many will need to relearn how to make this treasure-hunting tool.

To craft a Brush in Minecraft you’ll need three ingredients:

  • 1 Feather
  • 1 Copper
  • 1 Stick

You’ll be able to get hold of the feather by killing a chicken. Then you can get the stick by chopping down a tree, turning the wood into planks, then turning those planks into sticks. Lastly, Copper can be found in caves and underground, just like other ores.
