Dip the end into the paint in paint and dab around the stem making the hairs of the feather. Add some shadow onto the hairs by repeating the same steps in Licorice.

  4. To make the small feathers paint the stem with a color and then dip the #2 flat brush into water and squeeze the end of the bristles with fingers to get a chiseled edge. Dip the end into the paint and dab around the stem making the hairs of the feather. Continue with all colors.
  5. Paint the strings to the feathers and the string holding the dream catcher using the liner brush.
  6. Add addition strings. Allow to dry and then add dots in all colors using the end of the liner brush. Add the beads to the dream catcher the same way.
