These Trimmed Peacock Tail Eye Feathers are beautiful and vibrant. They have been hand picked and carefully cleaned/steamed. The vibrant iridescent plumage colors of peacocks are not primarily pigments, but rather structural coloration. The feathers are actually pigmented brown, but their structure can make them appear blue, turquoise, and green, and iridescent. The colors are based on the spacing of regular, periodic nanostructures of barbules which produce the colors. Slight changes in these fiber-like components result in different colors. Brown feathers, for example, are a mixture of red and blue. One of the colors is created by the periodic structure and the other by an interference peak from reflections from outer and inner boundaries. Such structural coloration causes the iridescence of the peacock’s hues since interference effects depend on light angle rather than actual pigments.
These peacock tail eye feathers are all natural with beautiful iridescent green and blue colors that add a dramatic touch to any project. Peacock tail eye feathers are great to use in costumes to add finishing touches with dramatic style. They are also used for fashion accessories. Decorate a head band or hair clip for a natural look. They can be used in scrap booking to bring a natural element to your pages. Those that are especially gifted can also incorporate these into their home decor. They can make beautiful additions to centerpieces or along with flowers in a vase.
