feathers from raveling cotton fabric for my artproject his wings.
i make often projects with not commen materials. I had maked this angelpiggy , its a bag too, and i couldn't work on it, because i had to find some solution for making feathers for the angel his wings.
I don't like to use real feathers from birds, and i always try a look a like from other materials or other methods.
I had found this withe thin cotton fabric. I like it, its from the marked it was cheap.
I like to use it for this project.
so i tryed out many things, but this was the best methode,

I like it to share with you all my methode i had find out, Its nice to do, but its taking for my big two double wings much time, so please be paintend or make less big wings,LOL
I hope you like it.
