I've recently taken to painting on feathers, people seem to love them.
They're all done with acrylic paints on either turkey or peacock feathers.


These look pretty neat framed up in a shadowbox.

Why thank you!
Though I do use a fixative spray to try to make the feather easier to paint on, its still quite hard. Gotta use the lightest of strokes, and forget about diluting the paint to blend, it makes a huge mess on the feather that can't be removed.

Oh my! painting that in such a small scale on normal paper would be hard enough, but on a feather?! It's amazing.
