It's been a while since I had time to post a wingtip little less even visit the forum. Here;s a tip several people asked about One which I'm sure will offer up many other  different ways to accomplish, Here is how I ''CARD" wings on large birds I will post the technique on smaller birds at another time. The photos show the basic procedure but it;s basically running a wire under the wing to support the primaries and secondaries. I use a needle with cape thread to hold the last primary to the wire loop, this holds the wing in extended position. I then tape and card the feathers into position, One thing you will see in the pics is I then either run thread wing to wing to further extend, curl or cup the wing  into the desired position for the desired effect, You can also run a wire into the breast of the bird to ''pull the leading primaries into position. The following pics will explain the technique better. Look at the pics and I think they will help out! GOOD LUCK!

Very nice Wingman! 

I noticed between the last two pictures, the finished and unfinished, the wingtips are curled or flared. Would you mind sharing how this was achieved? Curling iron maybe?

Thanks for all the great info.

Wingman I really like the position of that lone standing rooster in the second photo in the background I am assuming that you wrap your own pheasant bodies, if so I was wondering what you wrap with, I use an excelsior base and then finish with tow but you can not find tow anymore so I was wondering what your process is, this would be an interesting future Wing Tip also.     Hambone

Wingman,

I was wondering when you were going to check in! Thanks for taking the TIME and post these great tips. You have taught this ole dog a few tips.

THANKS for your's truly Jeff Nelson aka stuffinducks.

BTW, Nice Tunda Swan!

Also, are you removing the meat from the third digit/primary area? I do...takes more time but all meat and marrow is removed and re-stiched up.

Thanks for all the kind comments, I do appreciate them, Time is a precious commodity and thats all it really takes to post these tips, Unfortunately there NEVER seems to be enough time! I have a young family and my wife is due anyday now so I will try to continue to take pics of different topics as they present themselves throughout the workweek. Now to answer a few questions, JON, the studio is new, 1 year this month and I do try to keep it clean and organized as I ''feel'' I produce better work that way, STRANGE I know!! Trapper, I will do a wingcurling topic sometime But it;s done using a heated modeling tool ,hambone, Go back several wingtips and I show the wrapped bodies and excelsior necks I do wrap all my bodies except that of large species swans, geese etc. Stuffinducks, I occasionally remove the flesh from that area BUT usually end up injecting formalin there as a rule, Removing the flesh is always a good Idea but I have good luck injecting it also! Once again thanks to all for your kind words! Later............
