Ostrich Feather

Ratite feathers aren't like those of other birds, have a go at colouring your own.

You'll need black, blues, greys, browns & pinks to colour this Feather... remember if you don't have all the colours you need, you can mix other colours to get the ones you want.

The feather is darker towards the centre and lighter as you go towards the tips.

Start light and build the colour up, if you start too dark too soon, you can't add any more.

Practise mixing your colours on a separate sheet of paper first so that you know what to expect when you move to colouring the real thing.
