    3. Apply a wash of clean water onto the feather. Slightly water down your color for the feather (Melon, for example), and run a center stripe down your feather. The color will automatically disperse onto the feather. Run a stripe of a slightly darker color down the center next. Let it dry. Use gold Dazzling Metallics paint to paint in fun patterns on feathers.Repeat with different colors on additional feathers.
