Feathered Thumb by Emma Whiting
Welcome to my shop, Feathered Thumb, at The British Craft House.
Here I am selling Greeting Cards, hand made Original Art Cards and small framed Original Paintings/Collages with my own original Feathery designs!
The nature and wildlife where I live, in the very middle of England, is the inspiration for many of my designs!
The process for creating each image starts with painting my own thumb with gouache paint, from which I make a print. I add detail to the thumb print with a brush and hand apply real, natural feathers to turn the print into a Bird, Fish,or Insect! The finished artwork is scanned and the Cards are printed in Northamptonshire.
I also create delicately painted Original Art Cards and small framed Paintings/ Collages on Cotton-Rag paper using watercolour and hand applied, real, natural undyed feathers. These make the perfect gift for any occasion!
The muted colours and markings of the feathers I use are subtle and beautiful, no two feathers are alike so every Art Card and Picture is totally unique!
I am currently working on ideas which include:
‘Feathered Flowers’ ‘Feathered Hearts’ and ‘Feathered feet!’
