How are Marbled Feathers Created and How are They Used?

A beautiful hat creation by Elaine Mergard using marbled feathers sold by Elaine is a well known milliner in Australia who, not only creates and sells her hats, but also heads up the Hat Academy at  a fascinating and inspiring Millinery Creative Collective~stop by and BE~DAZZLED! 

I marble handmade paper and feathers at the same time. The paper marbling starts when I want to change
color schemes for the next set of feathers. The technique is the same for both and I use the paper
to pick up the color in the vat so I can start throwing down the next set of colors. I wrap every purchase in
my sheets of handmarbled paper.
