I’ve got a thing for feathers at the moment. They are so tactile and beautiful I could look at them forever. And once you start painting them gold, you’ll want them even more. I used mine to decorate a package, but they are best friends with interior decorators as well. Put them under a glass and let the pretty things shine!
What you’ll need
*Textile painting (I used Royal Talens Decorfin gold, nr 801)
*Water color for any other color
*A small brush
*A match (if you want stamp dots)
Well, this is probably the easiest DIY you’ve ever seen. Just grab those lovely feathers and start exploring your favorite patterns. I like dots and graphic lines. My 6 year old daughter Josi painted just the upper part blue (like a dip-dye) and I loved it. Just follow your heart and it will turn out beautiful!
