So one day..a nice championdancer told me how she made hers. She said she used thin popsicle sticks or bamboo sticks for kebobs. She said get white thick thread or invisible thred. Tie it tight to the top. Chose your style of feather..tipped with black or all white. Start wrapping this feather, from the stalky base to the tip of the stick.wrap it good, choose your nextfeather, and so on. I made a killing and I had a feather plume made in 5 minutes that was worthy of a craft sale. Fun!

            you mention you use the fake maribou fluffs. Are those the ones they sell at wal-mart? Do you use glue? What kind? Do u use glue to stick on the fake maribou fluffs?

            Meet me in the garden..your plumes were wonderful. i just use the fake maribou fluffs. Depends on what stick i use..a bamboo stick is smaller in fluff but put two together and they rock.

              My cousin shot two big ole turkeys Sunday and, after he was done cleaning the meat and taking the tails and feet, handed them over to me to do what I pleased. Well I got a ton of pretty, dark plumes and four huge wings. They are drying as we speak. We split two of the wings into two smaller...

              Well, as if I don't have enough other projects going right now I have decided to try my hand at silverwork. I have a ton of it that I need for new dance clothes for my family so I figured I should see if I am any good at it. I have been picking up a few tools and am waiting on some sheet metal to arrive...
