    I've always wanted to try that but I'm worried about burning the feathers. What's your guys method?

    Very nice as usual Matt, should we expect anything else. I have a few birds in the process that I plan to do before and afters, I just hope this awesome thread does not get as clicky as BOTW. Now that I spoke my mind please do not chastise me.

    Hot pin technique. ;) Heat up a length of 14 gauge wire and run it along thd feaher shaft being careful not to burn the barbules....then shape to desired action
     
  13. Very Nice Birds KMA, very smooth and soft amazing what a Clean Washed bird will look like lol!!

    Matt, would a wood burning tool work for this or do you think it would get to hot?
     
  15. Matt the pins turned out great. Love the base work. That woodie fit in good too.

    I've had a few folks tell me that they use a woman's flat iron... although it works I don't like to touch the barbules unnecessarily.
