Feather inlay/color preserver
Posted by: Jon Hood (---.hsd1.fl.comcast.net)

I have put feathers (over thread) on a blank with color preserver (flex coat). All seems good at this point except for 1 small area of a jungle cock feather - the eye at the end of the feather. It seems to be rejecting the color preserver. there are 3 other jungle cock feathers on my build that accepted it fine. The color preserver just glides off of this area even when i place a drop on it. I am concerned about applying the epoxy over this area and it being rejected as well. Is there anything i could try and clean this area to get it to accept the preserver. Any ideas of whats going on and how to remedy this issue please!

I think I will try to clean it first as it was soaked in preserver and glue down very good! I would probably make a big mess trying to remove it! Anyone else have any ideas?

Ok, I didn’t get a lot of responses to my issue so I experimented- I took a razor blade and lightly scraped the the feather. Then I used the point of the razor and lightly cut through the feather - reapplied the color preserver and it seemed to saturate as it should. I will reapply later, then apply the epoxy. I will repost at that time to let everyone know if this worked.
