Are the feathers water proof?

Well, I sprayed them with several layers of acrylic varnish, so I hope they will be able to withstand some rain, but I highly doubt it. The glue used is water soluble so if it rains and they get wet they might potentially start coming apart.

I'm still trying to waterproof them because I spent so long on these wings that I don't want to lose them if it rains at the event I plan on wearing them at.

I spent the better part of yesterday waterproofing my wings with waterproofing spray for tents. It rains a lot here too and I don't want to lose the wings after like 10 minutes if it does rain, and so ar it seems to be working. Some brands leave stains though, and others make the feathers fall apart, so trial and error.... I tried it on some spare feathers :)

How did you make the feathers?

It's basically 2 layers of fake silk lining with a layer of polyester fibre mat in between, a drinking straw for the vein, and a lot of wall paste glue.

Silly question, can I ask what material you used to make the feathers?

It's 3 layers of fabric, fake silk lining fabric on the outside and some kind of polyester webbing as the core layer to give it some strength.

..Ziet er erg goed uit, maar ik zie dat je een andere werkwijze hanteert dan ik; Geen bericht is goed bericht denk ik dan maar. Gaat het allemaal nog naar wens?

Het is allemaal even experimenteren, alles ligt nu weer even stil, weer 3,5 week ziek geweest, en besloten om de veren een kleurtje te geven, dat kan beter voor alles in elkaar zit ;)
Ik ben nu dus aan het wachten op de spuitbus, en aan het bedenken hoe ik al die veren in hemelsnaam aan het frame vast ga maken, dat wordt nog even puzzelen hoor.

Mooi! Leuk om te zien dat jij de veren wat puntiger hebt gemaakt.
Ik ben benieuwd hoe het er uit ziet als ze geverfd zijn. Die kleurencombi van de pruik vind ik erg mooi in ieder geval :)
