    There is only one way to find out . It would have to satisfy your eye, not to worry about others.

      So here's the torched feathers.
      I have a local artist who wants to attempt to paint a bare one, so will eventually post hers when it is finished. I have to invest in a micro burner and a real vise.
      but they didn't turn out too bad, largest so far is 9 inches, the max my vise holds.

        Becky, just what are trying to achieve? Not a feather guy, so excuse my ignorance. Guess I've seen too many westerns, but it seems to be the feathers they had in them are white with a tip. I know that there are birds with dark feathers. So I guess that is why I'm wondering what you are shooting for.

          Depends on the feather. I am trying to achieve the perfect tone with torching and brushing the wood. I will show you an example of eagle feathers that achieves almost the same color. They aren't mostly white depending on body part. Quite the opposite actually.

            Right now I am focused on the torching, I can focus on the proper placement later once I get the bigger proper sizes made. I think anyway, what is in my head, who knows

              Hi Becky
              I just had a thought. ( It does happen occasionaly) What about lamp black powder!!!! This is a powder micro fine with intense black properties and is used for high quality paint and black ink. The tiniest bit goes a VERY LONG WAY. if you dusted a little onto a fine fluffy type brush you could dry brush it on like makeup and have a lot of control on the outcome.

              Think it might have been used in stove black as well for tarting up the old cast iron stoves. Just thought it would be a cheap option to explore.

              Cheers for now.

                You go gal, you got us all watching now. I figured that eagle feathers were mostly dark, you get it figured out. (what is in a head, who knows)
