You can use a variety of paints on a material such as feathers, it all depends on how long you want the paint to last. Common paints combined with features include acrylic, watercolour, and tempera paint. If you prefer something a little different, you could also try spray paint.
Once you have painted your feathers, there are a bunch of things you can do with them. You can use painted feathers on a wall-mounted canvas, or even use them to make some original pieces of jewellery. The applications for painted feathers are almost endless.
How Do I Create A Feather Chandelier?
Crafters who are big fans of dreamcatchers will love the look of a feather chandelier. Complement this concept with some of the painted feathers we mentioned earlier, and you will get an original chandelier that becomes the talk of the neighbourhood.
Before you can make a chandelier from a selection of features, you will need a base for it. There are several bases suitable for a chandelier with features, this includes the basic lamp shade frame or a classic chandelier shell. To help you decide, it can help to envision how you want your feather chandelier to look like before you choose your base.
You can use various techniques to apply the feathers to your base. Firstly, you can implement them across the chandelier base, this through a unique weaving process or invisible glue. You can also hang the feathers from a string of your choice, hanging the features down like on a dreamcatcher. Naturally, the second one proves most popular among crafters, as it allows for additional creativity. For example, you can interchange feathers with beads and crystals.
What Do I Create Wall Mounted Feather Artwork?
When you want an original piece of artwork in your home, some feather artwork will look brilliant. Before you start, be sure to determine if you want to use a collection of small feathers, a giant feather, or a mixture of different sized feathers, this will help you determine which feathers to obtain from Spotlight.
To create some wall-mounted artwork, you will also require a base to add the feathers to. Basic canvas could be the first thing you consider, but there are other materials that can create a beautiful material as well. One of our recommendations is natural wood, which can form a beautiful combination with the feathers from our catalogue.
Once you have your basic block of wood &ndash, or another base of your choice &ndash, you can start preparing the feather for implementation. You can paint the feathers or leave them in their original colour, the choice is up to you. When you are happy, simply glue the feathers to the wood block. However, be careful not to leave any glue residue on the edges of the feather or the block itself, as this could ruin the aesthetics of your masterpiece.
