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…

Here's a set of flexible leather masks covered in a satiny blue and silver brocade. I've been cutting the male mask a little taller these days and like the effect when worn.
