ink jar and quills

    Newer Older

    I got the ink jar at Savers for a buck, and the feathers at Hobby Lobby: two or three dollars for a package of six.

      I've read about doing your own quills. Did you temper the points, or just use them straight away?

      At first I just cut them straight away, but then I went back and baked them for about 10 minutes at about 200 degrees (I read that you should use hot sand but I was lazy) and re-cut them. That seemed to work pretty well.

      I can remember trying to use a quill exactly twice, neither time being much of a success. I may have to check out the feather selection at the craft store next time I'm by there.

      Really fun. I love all the little scribbles. :)
