  • faked plumes

    I found an awesome imitation for plumes...have you ever seen those feather boas that they sell at costume shops that are like plumes? Use that....thread the string up a shishkabob skewer and add in a few feather tips and there you go...insta full plumes!! I even found that I added peices of the boa into my full set of plumes and it looked even better. If you can't find them in the right color...dye the feathers in strong coffee for just 20-30 seconds, wash them off with soap, rinse very well, and blow them dry on a high heat setting ( to make them even fluffier) and they look PERFECT!!!!

    May even you could dye the tips of feathers to imitate blacktips, with the coffee as well in spots and for a longer period of time, I haven't tried that yet though.....

    I made 3 sets of full plumes that look incredible for $12.00 Cdn!

    Have Fun!

                      by the way i tried dyeing the feathers with coffee to make blacktips or other spotting and it didn't work. I have a picture but no computer to upload the pictures onto. I will get to it this week.

                                Eagle feathers, how do you clean them?
                                My daughters have danced for years and now that my oldest is a young women, I am allowing her to wear her eagle feathers that were given to her some years ago.

                                What is the respectful way of cleaning the plumes, tail and wing feathers. I keep them in a feather box, but we all know that...

                                How you get such big plumes
                                by sac&fox06
                                I would just like to know how you make plumes so thick and tall? I have several eagle plumes that are around 8inches but they are not thick like most ladies i see wearing these days nor as tall?

                                How do you attatch the plumes to your barretts?

                                Bleaching Plumes
                                by ndnhottie79
                                I just recieved a bunch of plumes and I am not too crazy about the orange color of the plumes. I would like to make them completely white so that I can wear them with either rig. How do I go about bleaching them to white? I have heard of bleach, sun, and hydrogen peroxide....I need a place to start....
