I like to work with Mod Podge on a clean sheet of freezer paper with the shiny side up. The Mod Podge doesn’t stick to it easily.
Paper absorbs the Mod Podge, so you’ll need to lay out your pieces and work with some speedy enthusiasm. Here you can see that one feather’s tail is pointing right and the others are pointed left. We’re going to give all four a quick coat of Mod Podge–
And then flip them one by one, adding a coat of Mod Podge before flipping the next.
Coating both sides before sticking them together gives them a solid finish when it dries, but also the tiniest bit of wiggle to adjust them and line up the sides evenly.
When you’re finished with the assembly, pick up the feather and smooth the edges, seal the underside and all the way around and brush away any excess.
You may need to use a needle or pin to clear Mod Podge out of the hole that you’ll use for the jump ring if any has gathered there. You can also adjust the shape with your fingers– you may want it to dry flat or you may want it to have a bit or curl or curve to it. However you shape it up, gently plop it on a clean and dry spot on your freezer paper or non-stick surface to dry. Which won’t take long at all.
And the jump rings and the ear wires, and you’re good to go! And then there are 57 million options. Paint them any color you like.
And that’s it. So simple, right?
