In The Studio: The Beginning of Something Beautiful

January 25, 2012

It's the Beginning of Something Beautiful

A close call  pushed me to try something I've been considering for a while.  I sort of love when that happens though, because the outcome is usually pretty great. 

This time is no exception.

A very special order nearly went awry when I had to order additional feathers (don't worry, everything worked out perfectly). Normally this would not be an issue but the additional feathers were definitely not the same as the original color. Now I do understand that dye lots vary and that these things happen but to protect myself in the future I decided to venture into dying my own feathers!

I have to say I was hesitant and that's why I've only thought about dying feathers for months, but now that I've gotten my toe wet I can't wait to take the plunge.

Here is a sampling of this divine color I conjured up. I really can't wait to try more, and the beauty of it is I can make just about any color I can imagine! This means limitless possibilities for custom orders and matching wedding colors.

 No more settling for what I can find, watch out rainbow here I come!

Some feathers just out of the dye. They don't look too much like feathers... yet.

So beautiful. Ready for a wonderful project.
