I am a woodcarver. Several of my recent projects have been birds: a Sandpiper (life size - so relatively small), and an Eagle, which stands about 16 inches tall. The feathers have been carved, and I used a woodburner to add the vein and barbs on the feathers, but would now like to paint to give realistic look. So an approach on feathers would be very interesting - well to me at least! :drunk: Thanks!
