Waste of a good feather, most of that could be used for fletching!
I'd love to see the video making pigments tbh. Finding ANY tutorial online without gum arabique is impossible, and I am quite certain that prior to the 1700's we had ink and paints, but damned if I can find a modern example using early European methods.
Fletching is made by first stripping the thicker sections of a feather (not the tip) from the pinna. Done carefully, this technique could yield both.
Excellent. Thank you. I will keep watching as you put up more teachings.
