    Do any of you guys use flocking for a pheasant's wattle to get bright red colors? Thanks Ed

    Never tried it. I usually white the area out and then hit with red and redo the black dots.

    I’ve tried red flocking but wouldn’t recommend it. Detail airbrushing seems to work the best for me. Try all methods and decide what you like. Or make up your own

    I just turn my airbrush pressure up real high and get close and paint red. The high pressure tends to keep the longer black feathers clean.

    Since I stopped doing pheasants, I've learned pan pastels. I bet a small dry brush dabbed in red pastel and dabbed on the wattle would work too.

    A red sharpie felt tipped pen will work.
