Azure Spirit - handpainted Featherquill by Ganjamira Azure Spirit - handpainted Featherquill by Ganjamira
:iconlawooplz: My first macaw featherquill!:la:
I had the big luck to find two friendly german parrot breeders who generously gave me the feathers their beloved birdies lost through molt - Oh my are the feathers gorgeous!!!

This was the hugest macaw feather I had - 43cm, over 1ft long! I arranged them with some backfeathers and painted them with a blue tribal ornament:meow:

RESERVED / Sold!

:boogie:For other quills and crafts take a look in my shop -> www.etsy.com/de/shop/MiraCraft…

:iconlachoirplz:I TAKE COMMISSIONS! Just note me your wishes:meow:

I want to write a novel with it. :noes: This is absolutely gorgeous! 
Does it use an inkwell or is there like an ink barrel inside it like a ball point pen?</smal>

Very lovely piece! Out of curiosity, what kind of paint do you use on the feathers?

Ganjamira Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2014  Professional Artisan Crafter
Thank you so much!:hug:
I use GamesWorkshops Citadel-Colors for all my feathers and PearlEx metallic pigments here and there^^
Those paints are waterbased, so they donīt make thick layers as acrylics or oil would do. (but it works with acrylics as well^^)
