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…

Black Satin With Red Rose Mask by DaraGallery
Black Satin With Red Rose Mask
A black brocade masquerade mask using a new form for me. Pressed paper pulp rather than papier mache. A little lighter and more flexible but durable. It takes fabric glue really well. I wouldn't want to try it with some of my heavier centerpieces or fascinators.

Butterfly and Royal Blue by DaraGallery
Butterfly and Royal Blue
I wanted to create a few cheerful brocade masquerade masks as we are about to head into winter here. In this one the butterfly has left its meandering trail from corner to corner.

Butterfly and Ivory by DaraGallery
Butterfly and Ivory
This is the first of two butterfly themed brocade & paper mache masquerade masks that I just completed. I'll post the second in a second :)

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