Here is another idea I come up with do you folks think these could be palm leaves or ferns if youre wondering what I made this from its a feather out of a feather duster.

That does look pretty good. Very convincing palm tree trunk.
And those feathers would be great for palm leaves or ferns once painted up.

That are some wonderfull pics of a great experiment. I never thought feathers would look so convincing as foliage and the trunk is very good too
