Most of my regular followers will know I have a bit of a thing for glitter, I have been busy this week creating glitter dipped feathers for a little project I have been working on so thought I would share an easy tutorial with you. The dipped feathers can be used as backdrop, as details for your place settings or highlights in your flowers.
All you need is – A brush, PVA glue, a selection of feathers and a pot of glitter emptied into a bowl.
1 – Make sure the feathers are clean, then lightly brush the PVA glue over the tip of the feather.
2 – Make sure there is not so much glue that it drips off the feather, you only need a very thin coating. Dip the end of the feather into the bowl of glue. Shake off excess glitter.
3 – Place your feather somewhere to dry, it is essential the glue tip is not touching any surface. I used oasis to keep the feather upright and separate.
Why stop with glitter you can also use paint and sequins!
It’s so simple but very beautiful 🙂
What will you be using your dipped feathers for?
