Imagine texturing a bird carving in minutes instead of hours!
Define a feather and burn the barb texture in seconds!
Not only are feather formers faster to burn with, but painting a “Feather-Formed” surface is easier too. It’s is easier because the texture is not too deep. You can easily paint accent marks at angles to the main texture, creating a very soft, natural look. Once your bird has been textured you can come back with you regular pens to create stray barbs or splits as desired. Or you can continue on with stoning techniques. The possibilities are endless.
The throat and head feathers on this hummingbird were burned in less than 4 minutes. Throat feathers are around 250 lines per inch, while the top of the head was burned at 130 lines per inch. There are 60 different Feather Formers available from 40 lines per inch to 250 lines per inch.
