I am an Artist, and have been commissioned to re-finish the faded Red Face feathers on a Ringnecked Pheasant.
My Customer says they are faded.
Can you advise what type of paint to use?

Otherwise, you'll cover the black feathers sprinkled throughout the wattle area. I use Cad Red.
Just use a blood red paint with a brush and touch the tiny black feathers that grow in that area with a q-tip and they will be fine.
Just go easy and a bit at a time with the brush.
George, I use the airbrush but still covered some of the little black feathers on the wattle. I used my wifes mascare (might be wrong spelling- eye lash make-up w/brush) and touched up. Worked great. Something I read in the archives. Just letting you know. Thanks.
