Step 1: Supplies
A feather (see step two)
A piece of 3/4 inch or similar wood (optional)
A small container ( like a film canister)
A drill (optional)
A jar with a lid
Step 2: Choosing your Feather
Your feather should be from a large bird ( like a turkey, goose, ect.) so that it will have a thick quill. This is so that it will be strong enough to be cut into a pen. Your feather should also be nice and full, with few imperfections.
Some places to find feathers-
the internet ( sites like zucker feather products are good)
Step 3: Prep your feather
To wash your feather, gently run it under warm water while smoothly cleaning any dirt or bugs off of it.
To make your feather pen last longer, you may wish to dip the end of the quill in warm sand for a bout 30 min.
this will harden the point of the quill, making it stronger.
