Cut off the tail feathers and the smaller brown ones in front, and removed a small piece of skin with the shiny hackle feathers on it and dried that with borax. But the rest of the feathers didn't need borax cause I just cut them off. Hot glued onto small pieces of cardboard and all 3 layers glued together. This will go on the beard board that I am working on.

You lost me with gluing three layers to cardboard. What needed gluing? Borax will dry it out stiff and no need to glue anything on the fan. Maybe I just missed something. Looks good either way.

I cut the feathers off at the base and glued the feathers onto cardboard at the base. There were 3 layers of feathers, 2 glued to cardboard and 1 still attached to the skin (dried out). Glued all 3 layers together.

Looks good Catman. I get cardboard as well, but I spread the fan, then just use push pens into the cardboard to where the fan can't fold back together. Salt and give time to dry. Good looking fan
