Sanitizing Feathers


When researching the proper way to sanitize bird feathers I came upon a lot of information - some of it good, some of it not so good and some of it just plain confusing. I have summarized the most useful info here in a blog on the subject: daragallery.wordpress.com/2013…

This is a smaller size masquerade mask in leather instead of my usual paper mache. It was a custom order. I'm doing one in red brocade at the moment - if i can finish it before this weekends renaissance fair.

Pink and Silver Steampunk Cuff Bracelet by DaraGallery
Pink and Silver Steampunk Cuff Bracelet
A pink brocade over leather cuff with two types of trim, gears, jeweled rivets, gold eyelets and a felt back.  It's for my niece who is under the weather and should match her hair. Yeah, her hair.

Help! I'm thinking of renaming my dA site & online venues (Etsy, Goodsmith', etc). Which name do you like best?
