How to Make Your Own Feather Art

If you choose to use a store-bought or already-finished frame, skip Steps 1 and 2.

  1. Take your frame apart and paint the frame with your Blessed Rescue Restore Paint, making sure to get consistent coverage with a sponge or chip brush.
  2. Paint the inside bevel or outside lip of your frame’s mat with Hush Your Mouth Gel Art Ink. Make sure to water it down with one part water, one part paint for a beautiful watercolor layer. Set both the frame and mat aside to dry while you work on your feather art.
  3. Place the feather stencil on your watercolor paper where you would like it.
  4. Apply Hush Your Mouth Gel Art Ink to sections of the feather stencil with your spreader. Do not cover the whole stencil, as you’ll be filling in the rest with the other Gel Art Ink color.

5. Apply Well, I Declare Gel Art Ink to the remaining sections of the feather, blending the colors together to completely fill in the stencil. Let both layers of Gel Art Ink fully dry before moving on.

6. If you want to add Gold Leaf to your feather art, apply Gilding Size to a few accent areas on your (fully dry) feather. Allow the Gilding Size to come to tack, meaning oily and slightly sticky, but not wet. Then, lay down a section of your Gold Leaf on to your feather. Using a dry chip brush, flake away extra Gold Leaf.

7. Cut down your watercolor paper to fit your frame and mat. Then, attach your finished watercolor feathers to the back of the mat and place everything back into the frame.

As creative business owners, it can sometimes feel like you’re not doing enough — or doing it well enough. What’s likely happening, though, is that you’re “falling short” in a couple of areas, and that’s spilling over into your other work (which you’re doing exceptionally well). The key is to uncover a place or two where you would say you are “falling short.” Whether you feel short on time, energy, results or follow-through, know this one thing… we all are right there with you!
