I have now completed my fourth fan and have been wondering whetherI should clean the feathers(before or after) for better appearance. They look good now, but will cleaning the feathers with soap and water or whatever improve the look?
Need some advice

If your tail feathers are dirty I wash them before I mount them. It's a lot easier this way.
You can also try to steam them too.
Tails before mounting......lol. The oils which birds produce and apply to their feathers to keep them waterproof and in good condition will alter in time, collect dust, and make an otherwise good mount look shabby.
