:bulletblue: Custom order for a Etsy-customer:heart:

Already my third Paragon Soul!:la: I´m still so in love with this concept, and of course, with blue macaw feathers!:love:

The designs painted on the feathers are inspired by the "Paragon" logo from MassEffect.

The quill is handcrafted by me, assembled from seven magnificent blue wingfeathers from the common yellow chested macaw. The hold is made from satin ribbon I winded arround the end of the largest feather, decorated with a blue glass gem, a silver metall ornament and a beautifull silver wing.
Writing nib in the tip:meow:
The tribal ornaments are all handpainted by me directly on the feathers, using Citadel-Colors and a small brush.

:bulletgreen:For more quills VISIT MY SHOP! ->…

PLEASE NOTE: The feathers come from beloved petbirds, bred in captivity and owned by loving Birdbreeders in germany. They are naturaly lost through molt and were given to me by the owners. No bird was harmed for this piece of art!!!

How on earth do you paint of the feathers without the feather barbs separating? I tried painting feathers for imitations arrows and they all separated when painted and looked awful *cries*
