Step 1: Getting the Fringe

Before you can do anything you need to cut the fringe feathers off of the rachis (the feathers main shaft).

Step 2: Glue

Gather the fringe feathers you just cut and a bundle where the top parts are even. Now place a very small amount of glue onto the end of the feathers and let cool for a few seconds. Once the glue is tacky to the touch roll it around the feathers to make sure it is evenly coated.

Step 3: Closures
