Well thought out and written Ron. I enjoy seeing how you keep your feathers in such and organized fashion. I will now have to go through the few matched sets I thought I had and see if they really are matched or not... crying.gif

It's all true ... Ronn is organized!

After watching Ronn at his craft for about a year now it really is like watching a painter. He works mostly from the picture in his mind and he can go to his wall of materials and pick the colors that he wants like a painter at his palette. I don't think it would work very well if he wasn't pretty organized. If he had to dig through material looking for stuff I think he would lose his inspiration.

Great article Ronn. I hadn't realized it is best to get feathers from the back of the skin and not towards the outer edges of the skin. Maybe that is why my wings have a tendency to slip down over the shaft.

Thanks
Jim

Thanks for this article Ronn, it is something I feel that is important for me to know. Plus that is one wicked collection of wings there. What is your favorite feather to use as a wing?

Good article and so organised,I dare not show pics of how I store everything!!

Perhaps the most important point is how the chaos of trying to find things can show up in the fly,so True me thinks.
