Painting is a skill that takes time to perfect, using a feather as a canvas, makes the process, that more difficult.
Krystle Missildine describes painting on feathers, as he latest obsession, I will give you her words to explain a bit more about the process.  "The challenge of building up layers of paint on such a fragile surface is both exciting and arduous. With such a small, delicate canvas, I have to make sure my brush strokes are gentle and precise. I use acrylic paints and tiny paint brushes, and all of the feathers I use were naturally molted – many of which were donated to me by parrot owners, or were shed from my own five pet birds."  She made her name as an artist, painting and drawing pet portraits, this is just one feather in her cap.  (I am really sorry about that, I just couldn't help my self... :)  Missildine's art shows that she has a real passion for her work and a love for animals, which is divided between her work and two mixed-breed dogs plus five birds.  Below a video of one of one of her paintings.
