    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    Look great!

    I'm guessing you will NOT run any gold colored kit on these, I would think the silver or chrome stuff would off set these nicely.

    On a slightly different note, have you ever thought of tinting the clear Polyester Resin you use? With a black and white (basically) feather like this, I would think that you could tint the Polyester Resin with a blue or pink or something to get a look you could not see easily in nature (unless you find some parrots that don't mind giving up some feathers I guess ).

    Great work Les!

    Sounds like a great idea Stuart.

    Any hints on how to tint Polyester?
