In this 100 minute video starting with a small bird, you will learn how to build a convex tail with the bird facing the front. You will see how to support the tail and why.
The second bird is of a medium size and the tail has a side view with long narrow feathers which are usually a bit of a challenge at times. I will show you a technique for cutting these tail feathers which when you apply it to this bird or any bird with a similar tail it comes together easily and is really effective.
The last bird is large and has a spectacular fanned tail which is also slightly concave. You will learn how to smooth down ridges on the edges after cutting the pieces out, and how to keep track of your feathers even though they appear similar being all white. This tail is amazing as you will see when it is completed..
