Instructions for Feather Rocks
If you prefer video instruction for our painted peacock feather rocks, watch our short video below.
Once your peacock feather is brushed out and the rock has been primed (or cleaned), it’s time to assemble our peacock feather rock.
First, measure the feather to ensure it fits on the rock. Then, apply ModPodge in a light coat.
Carefully place the peacock feather onto the ModPodge, smoothing out any areas where the feather doesn’t lie flat. This is a bit tricky, but with practice becomes much easier. Just be sure that the center of the feather is flat against the rock – we don’t want it to catch on anything and be pulled up.
Once your feather has been positioned, coat it in ModPodge and let it dry.
After the sealer has dried, decorate your rock with paint pens or acrylic paints. Seal the feather again with ModPodge.
Before placing the rock in the garden or hidden outside for others to find, wipe on multiple coats of the polyurethane sealer.
