Carving and Painting a Feather Pin

The subject is a wood duck sidepocket feather.

Items to bring with you:

  • Your favorite carving knife
  • A desk lamp
  • Magnifier glasses
  • Woodburning pencil w/ wire tips & heat control (if you already have one). 
  • A hair dryer

  • I will provide:
  • Carving blanks
  • Abrasive cloth
  • Brushes 
  • Paints
  • Pin findings
  • Two woodburning stations
  • Two rotary tools w/ sanding disks & a dust collector

  • In the morning, we will shape the feather blank using tools of your choice and abrasive cloth. We will then texture the feather with a wood burning tool and seal the feather with a protective coating.

    In the afternoon, we will paint the feather pin, apply a protective finish and attach a pin finding.

    There should be sufficient time to make more than one feather pin, if you wish.
