Re-create this stunning design, guaranteed to ruffle a few feathers!
Gather your supplies
• Large craft feathers in pale pink (we used 34)
• Gloss acrylic paint in pink
• Thin artist’s paintbrush
You’ll also need
Paint tray; craft glue; heavy gauge artist’s paper or white card to fit inside chosen frame; box frame with hanger
Step 1 Dispense a small amount of paint into paint tray. Working 1 feather at a time, hold feather at base of quill and use thin brush to paint evenly spaced striped sections along vane on both sides of stem of feather. Repeat for all remaining feathers.
Step 2 Put a small glass in centre of artist’s paper and arrange feathers around glass, keeping the curve of each feather facing same direction.
Step 3 When happy with layout, working 1 feather at a time, run a small amount of craft glue along quill and stem of each feather. Glue in place. Let dry.
Step 4 Put your finished artwork on backing board of chosen frame. Tape artwork to backing board if necessary. Insert backing board into frame and secure with fasteners at back of frame. Your artwork is ready to hang!
