I too was once poor and living in my house and finding it hard to get
painting supplies. I solved the problem by going out to the local shops and
getting the paint supplies there.

Bamboo cane is remarkably cheap. The inner core can be made from an old
steel coat-hanger, and can be magnetised by making it the solenoid in an
electro-magnet set-up, which you can easily construct yourself, from
materials which should not cost more than 5 ($10 US) from your local
electronics store, assuming you know a modicum of Electronics.
