Carving feathers as part of a leather design is something that has become quite popular, particularly on Facebook and other social media sites. In this video, Jim Linnell teaches a class on, not only carving leather feathers, but also how to paint them and make them truly three-dimensional. For this online class, participants came prepared to create these projects right along with Jim. Additionally, Jim discussed how to integrate these feathers into a variety of projects, including leather art and jewelry.
Please note that this live class was recorded during a heavy storm over Venus, Texas, so some pixelation does occur in the second half of this video due to connectivity issues.
