  • Best looking imitation Hawk feathers?

    My son wants desperately to wear a red-tailed hawk tail feather in his hair after his upcoming birthday. I'm reluctant to have him wear a real one (for fear of loss or harassment), but wouldn't mind a nice scalplock made with a painted imitation.

    Problem it, a LOT of those hand-painted hawk tail feathers look really cheap. The brush strokes are obvious because they're rushed, and they just look tacky.

    Who sells the finest-quality imitation hawk feathers?

        He is a very busy guy,so keep trying him.There are several guys who do great imit.eagles,but andrew is the only guy out there I know who does hawk tails and as far as i'm concerned,the best at it.I have some of his feathers,which I use for educational purposes,and of course to wear in hats and dance in,and they are just fantastic.I know he's been having a hard time tryingf to find a good supplier for the feathers he uses(he's been known to sort through POUNDS of feathers just to get a mere handful that he can actually use).But don't give up..he loves to do this.good luck...and keep smilin'1

          Since you mentioned it, then, who's doing the best Eagles?

          I got children who want to wear them, but shouldn't risk damaging the real thing until they're more experienced.
