Phoenix Rising Leather Feather by Arexandria Phoenix Rising Leather Feather by Arexandria
Okay guys, as promised this is my first fully painted and finished feather! This is my nouveau artistical take on my "Phoenix Rising" concept. The feather is done like my leaves in it that it is hand cut, then tooled, then shaped. After it is dried it is dyed with 3 base coats of leather dye to help stiffen then painted with three base coats of base paint. In this case the Royal Gold. Then it is spot painted with several colors. I started with Vanilla at the top. The beginning paint is spot painted all the way down and so on but each pain has a section where it is the primary focus. The light blue is here with a small area of primary focus secondary to how I love to see the blue in fire and enjoy it represented in several phoenix pieces. Then the final color that is applied is a Pewter which I use to represent the ashes. The Main vein is then repainted with the base color and the tooled edges are then painted with the base which causes a sectioned appearance and then painted with a clear dry color glitter to give it an even more amazing show in the sun, in this case I used a Gold glitter. This is feather is the final painted product; however, it will be used in an upcoming project to be my first feather product for sale. I will be posting a concept picture hopefully today and I am very excited about it! I hope you like my feather as much as you guys loved my leaves.
