Imagine texturing a bird carving in minutes instead of hours! Razertip's revolutionary Feather Formers™ let you define a feather and burn the barb texture in seconds. They are easy to learn and easy to use. There are 63 different Feather Formers™ available from 40 lines per inch to 250 lines per inch. Not only are feather formers faster to burn with, but painting a "Feather-Formed" surface is easier because the texture is not too deep. You can easily paint accent marks at angles to the main texture, creating a very soft, natural look. Once your bird has been textured with Feather Formers™ you can come back with your regular pens to create stray barbs or splits as desired, or you can continue on with stoning techniques. The possibilities are endless!
Feather Former™ tips are made from wrapped wire that burns multiple lines on contact. Feather and hair textures of almost any type can be achieved by using the bent portions (corners) of the various tip shapes (skew, spear, chisel and round). Sets of 4 tips are available in each different coarseness. Tip sets are a great way to get started with Feather Formers as they will allow you to achieve whatever texture you want. If using interchangeable tips we recommend that you have at least 2 of our #BPH pens on hand. This allows you to spend less time changing tips and also should prevent the need to change tips in a hot pen.
