Very Nice. Perhaps you could replace the real candles in your (Feathers Light) photo's, with the battery one as seen in this Instructable. This way your safety massage is consistant. I must admit that this was my concern when I first saw the Feather Light.. Another question. In your instructions you say sand (rub the surface) the bottle, scrape the feathers and then sand the bottle again. Is that correct and why sand twice? Could you also show the "backside" of the bottle to confirm that is in half. Very delicate work. I thought it was acid etched till I realised the bottle was plastic. Well done.

It is because sand twice can make the feathers become white.Thx for your comment.^^
