  • Fixing Plumes

    Can someone give me directions on how to fix actual plumes? I have some loose Eagle plumes and was hoping to make a small to medium side plume. No idea on how to start

    I'm not sure what you mean by fixing them, but if you mean putting them together to make a side plume...you do it the exact same way you'd do with non-eagle plumes. The feathers don't know the difference LOL. I think there's been various threads n tutorials on how to do so. Good luck :)

        Just search the archives for how to make plumes or something. I'm sure you'll find the threads.

          Well, before you put them together you should clean them. Get some woolite and luke warm water and swish them around in that for a few min, until they are clean, then dry 'em with a fan. After they are all dry, I like to use wire to wrap mine to. I don't use glue because when you want to change them out, the glue makes the stems all weak. I use clear nail polish to go over the threads once I'm done wrapping them. When you are all done, use a hair dryer and fluff 'em up. BAM...ya got some new plumes.
          HOWDY HOWDY HOWDY!!! LONG TIME NO SEE!!!

            Using a blank feather quill works great to...take a turkey feather and strip off all the feather part, then attach a darker tip and your plumes to the blank quill...gives it a nice natural curve

              I ended up giving them to a friend in SoCal. I still have some side feathers, hmmm.
