DYEING FEATHERS

It is quite easy to dye feathers, you just have to use not-to-harsh chemicals so that you do not destroy the feathers.

 Mix 2 teaspoons Rit Dye(or) Kool Aid, 1 teaspoon vinegar ,and  a pinch of salt in 3/4 cup of warm water. Make sure the container is not metal. I use a mason jar. 

Add feathers and make sure they are covered in liquid.

Put the container in the microwave for 2 minutes. Stir, and repeat for 2 more minutes. Let sit or 10 minutes.

Remove feathers, rinse under cold water , and blow dry. That's it!
