Panel "Fire feather"

Have you ever tried to make a decorative feather? But this is not a less interesting idea, especially for those who like to try something new, but not too time consuming. And if you develop your imagination further, then with such elements you can create an interesting panel, and compositions with flowers together. At this point, whoever has enough ideas for that. At first glance, such a feather is made not difficult, but the more it is implied in size, the process becomes more laborious. So we gain patience, and the desire to see our further result as soon as possible will help. We take colored threads (I have floss), wooden sticks (they are long and short, and you can also wire), PVA glue (you can , gelatin or starch), and a carton for winding threads.

Now we need to decide on the size Rami: Regardless what size sticks - thread shall be 2/3 of the length.That is, we divide the length of the wand into 3 equal parts and 2 of them are the length of the thread.

And that would be faster and more convenient, take a cardboard for winding threads on it. Now look at the sizes that I have:
  • The stick - 30 cm.
  • The threads - 20 cm.,
  • Carton length - 10 cm., Width is not so important.
Further Actions: 1. We wind the thread on the cardboard about 20-30 turns. Then cut in half and level. And so we do with all the colored threads. And when all the piles are ready, you can start using them.

2. We take a wand and move away from the bottom 1/3 part (bottom with a thick end, pointed top), and from there we start to tie the threads with a single knot. If it is convenient for you to work with the wand in a recumbent form, then do so. For example, I did not like to tie the knots, so I found a way out,in which she took the jar more heavily (with pebbles), made a hole in the lid for the wand, and so she took on me the form of standing, in which it became much easier and faster to tie the threads.

3. And thus, the thread by thread, color by color, we get to the very top. Sharp tip a little leave empty, and then the threads can peel off it during further processing. Now we need a comfortable piece and glue. In it, we will bathe our feather. My glue is thick, so I diluted it a little with water, quite a bit, otherwise it will remain on the surface and will not reach the inside of the thread.

4. It is necessary to gently impregnate all the threads evenly, even a little, so that it will be soaked. In the meantime, everything is soaked, lay on the table any cellophane. We will place a slightly pressed feather on it.

5.We take a similar rod and begin to gradually level and shape the threads. It should start from the top, with the upper threads need to pick up in the middle, connecting the two sides. And continue to give direction to all threads.

6. After all the strings are combed, you need to smooth them with the same wand. So they flatten out and prettier will lie down. And now, in this form, you can leave the pen to dry until completely dry. In a warm place, this process will go faster. By the way, you can not worry, it will not stick to cellophane. I have a thick big garbage bag, it doesn’t take a thick one, and does not take PVA, therefore it is very convenient. And I want to add, when the feather is ready, then you have the opportunity to make him a hairstyle, I personally like the edges in such a natural way, but you can cut them and make them smoother.

I think that if such feathers are added to any composition, for example, from flowers with your own hands, then it will look even more original and unusual.And if you play with colors, or add glitter (for example, Lyurix), or tint with shiny acrylic, this can be a true decoration. The most important thing is not to be afraid of experimenting! Fiery Feather
