I marble cockatoo and African grey parrot feathers. This can be compared to hand marbled paper except my canvas is white feathers and gray parrot feathers.
I have also collected vintage buttons, fabrics, eclectic objects for many years. These will be exciting discoveries for your original creations!

Marbled Feathers Low Heat Nice Bend
This is interesting.... and it makes using the marbled feathers more flexible! I am showing a picture of a lovely curve which was done on low heat with a curling iron. I found if I started the curve 1/3 up from the bottom of the feather and not at the middle, the feather barbs tend to stay together more easily. The further up on the feather that you start your curve the harder it will be keeping the feather barbs from separating.
