Paint on the feather with acrylic

Supplies needed:

  • White feathers
  • Piece of paper
  • Acrylic paints

We put feathers on the blue paper as it helps you to see your feather easily. If you use white paper on the white feather, you can’t see the feather and face difficulty painting. Now it’s time to paint on the feather. Keep it in mind to use the full feather and don’t go against the feather’s direction. Always put the paint in the feather’s direction. It will produce a neat and more graceful look.

Now it’s time to paint and make attractive designs on feathers. The question arises, what type of paints to use on feathers? So it would be best if you had acrylic paint on feathers as it lasts long. Use your favorite color on the feather. Use the colors combo that looks attractive on the feather. Don’t use too much quantity of paint. Only take a small amount and paint gently with your brushes. Use different brushes for different colors. You’re using your feather as the canvas. Again repeating, try to go with the feather’s grain.

Draw the 5 V shape lines on the feather. Paint each five V colors with different five colors. Use the markers to draw dots on the feathers. Draw from big to tiny dots. Now it’s time to use glitter glue. Use golden glue on the borders. Your painting will be looking shimmering and sparkling after utilizing the glitter glue. Let’s dry your feathers for some time.

This hack is full of fun. You can use your creativity, try to make a new design with new colors and glitters on feathers. You can use these painted feathers to decorate your room or on your heads and hair bands. Some people use this feather as a bookmark.
