Step 1: Materials
In this tutorial I want to show you where the feathers of small forest dragons come from In general, the process of creating a dragon consists of three steps— dry felting of the body base, making feathers and felting these feathers to the dragon., And for July we are using felt! This thick high quality 8 oz felt is made from recycled plastic bottles… that is just awesome!
I had two or three projects on the drawing board that required feathers. Mostly large black flight feathers. After nearly a year trying to find the size I needed in the colour I needed and at the price I wanted to pay - I was ready to give up. Then a rather ingenious art teacher friend of mine, Carrie Hoyle, showed me a basic technique for making paper feathers. I've refined her technique a little to add some extra robustness and realism. This technique can be adapted to make a variety of feather types, but it allows you to make feathers up to about 20" or 40cms long for costumes and props.
I also love buntings and garlands. Now start cutting little slits and triangles into each feather. Make each one unique. Sew your feathers together with the twine. As far as needle size goes, I recommend an embroidery needle since it is thicker.
