Eagle Dancer

Well, I have been working on a Kachina Doll for my Daughter. My problem has been that I have no access to feathers, at least not the one's I have in my mind. I guess I will have to Google feathers and see what I can find. I have been to our local Mercantile store, but they have very little in the fishing section and the Gear Shed has no feathers at all. I have to make wings for him and I really don't want to make them out of clay like the ones I made for his top knot. I am afraid they wont travel pun intended.  I still have to make his sash and moccasins and add a broader base so he wont be tippy. Time is running out......... I used Raindeer beard for the fluff around his neck and in the top knot to make it fuller. He will be a true Alaskan Kachina.  Well, back to the workbench.........we have snow........enough said.

What about sewing a pair of wings, Char? (Since I don't really know the look you are aiming for, this probably isn't helpful!) He looks very handsome... can't wait to see the finished product!

Thanks for your input, that is one option I am considering. Its been fun...sort of. I love Kachina's, always have, I guess that's where my Daughter gets it. Thanks for stopping by.
