I was going through my “bookmarks” last night, and saw that I saved something from Remodelaholic. One click led to another, and discovered their feather printables that you can mount on wood boards. That sparked my creative interest, so of course, I wanted to try my own. Only I didn’t print the feathers out. I, instead, referenced them to make my own wood plank feather paintings.
I dug through our wood scraps and found this nice sized 1×8. I cut it into 4 pieces, 10″ long each. Then I painted them white with some acrylic paint.
After they were dry, I grabbed my thin black sharpie marker and sketched the different feathers, using the printables (on my computer screen) as my reference.
I then took black acrylic paint and painted thicker lines. After that dried, I went over with some diluted colors.
I went over them lightly with a sheet of sandpaper to distress them.
Because they are meant to be a little wild looking, I free-handed all of them. Really fun project, and quick too! the longest part about these was waiting for the paint to dry.
I love how they turned out!
I just have to figure out where to hang them, now!
What have YOU made today?
