Printing with feathers using POP Paint.

Posted on 18 May 2017

The versatility of POP Paint is amazing. I am convinced I use it in my projects daily. The amazing colours must be the most attractive feature to me,
but also the quality of paint and ease of use. Today I am sharing some easy mono prints I created using POP Paint and a feather.
The backgrounds would look amazing for some father’s day cards – so that is what I am using them for.

step 1 – Gather some feathers to use. You can use craft feathers, but I had some real guinea fowl feathers on hand.
I also liked the fact that I can colour the feathers and then use them for another project.

step 2 – Select the colour of POP Paint you want to use, and grab your brayer (rubber roller).

step 3 – Brayer some paint onto your feather. I added quite a nice thick layer with my brayer.

step 4 – Once your feather is covered in paint, turn it over and lay it flat onto some colored cardstock pieces.
Place a piece of white scrap paper over the feather and use your hands to rub over the feather to transfer the paint.

step 5 – Use the same feather and stamp again onto another piece of inked cardstock.

step 6 – Stamp another piece of cardstock using the same feather.
You can achieve a few prints using the same painted feather.

Add more paint and stamp again as required.

Creating can be a wonderful journey and therapy making sense of things where life cannot, and I have tuned my life into this philosophy.
