Dirty Bird Bag of Tricks - Care & Clean your Feathers; Burning man, festivals, halloween, raves, photoshoots


The Dirty Bird Bag of Tricks kit is finally here!

People are always asking what the best methods are to cleaning their feather pieces and even shipping them back to me so that I can clean and bring them back to life. Over time, I started testing out different ingredients to see what worked best, so I came up with Feather Revival & Feather Conditioner.

Leave-in Feather Conditioner is used to hydrate and protect feathers from breakage, while at the same time giving them luster and shine. Dry environments like Nevada's Black Rock Desert at burning man is guaranteed to dry out feathers, and the last thing you want is to have your feathers break off while you're there and make a mess. Feathers need to be hydrated, especially in dry, harsh conditions! This leave in feather conditioner is the solution. Can be purchased separately.

Feather Revival is a recipe I came up with when people came back from burning man or had worn their pieces many times and over time there was the inevitable wear and tear. I put in a specific ratio of Apple Cider vinegar to target dust and dirt, but not so much that it's going to make you smell like a salad! Can be purchased separately.

Both the Leave-in Feather Conditioner and Feather Revival are the perfect for use on any Feather Mohawk, Feather Headdress, Feather skirt, Feather Shrug, Feather Earrings, Feather ear cuffs or any other Accessories containing feathers in them. Both of these products are also great for use on leather too!

I have also included a high-quality microfiber towel and cloth that I have found work best while cleaning my feathers, as well as my favorite go-to glues and free hair ties for those that wear my feather mohawks (I can't seem to have enough of those!)

What’s inside your Dirty Bird Bag of Tricks:

1 - 3-page full Instruction guide
1 - 4oz Feather Revival Feather Cleaner
1 - 2oz Feather Conditioner and Shine
1 – 15ml Quick Dry Glue
1 – 2g Instant Super Glue

**If you already own a feather mohawk that I have made you or are purchasing this with any of my feather pieces in my store, I will take $10 off of the kit, or $5 off of the individual bottles. Just let me know in notes during checkout so I can refund you! I will also combine shipping with the purchase of another item.

Feather headpieces and accessories are very fun to wear until they get dirty and even start to lose their feathers, which is an especially huge no-no in the festival world. You spend all of that money on having a gorgeous piece, but now it's looking less than glorious, and more like a Dirty Bird! Looks like it's time to get your Dirty Bird bag of tricks and ship your feather baby back into shape!

Frequently Asked Questions

Feather Mohawks - How secure is the clip?

I provide hair ties and step by step instructions along with a video on how to wear your mohawk. Once it's on - it's ON! In fact, they were designed to be able to withstand dust storms at Burning man! It is a piece that can literally be worn all day - I even slept in mine once. If you follow the instructions on how to wear it and really secure it in place(super tight hair ties, extra hair gel!!!), you should not have any problems with it falling off. I also can add an adjustable strap if you have little to no hair or would like the option at your request.

Feather Mohawks: My hair is short, bald or I have a very sensitive scalp so I prefer a strap as opposed to a clip.

If there is no drop down option in the listing, just let me know in notes during checkout and I will add an adjustable strap to your mohawk.

Feather Mohawks and Headdresses: Just how custom can you make my piece?

If you can think it up, I can make it! Contact me to discuss if you do not see what you are looking for. I love to take on new projects. More examples of my work can be found at www.facebook.com/artfromtheheART or feel free to add me at facebook.com/artisticalshell and take a look through my albums or tagged photos of people proudly the pieces I have made for them!

Can I see it before you ship it?

Yes! At your request, I will email you a photo of the exact one you will be getting before I send it out so that I get your seal of approval! I can also Skype, Facetime or send you a video at your request.

How many changes can I make after you show me a photo of my piece?

I don't place a limit on perfection. I will make as many changes as necessary until you are happy with it! Extra charges may apply if you request something that is going to take a lot longer to create or if it has to be special ordered.

How much will my feather mohawk or headdress weigh?

They're actually quite light - as feathers!

+Smaller feather mohawks are about 2.5-4 ounces
+Larger Mohawks are about 6-9 ounces.
+Headdresses can be anywhere between 6-1.5 pounds depending on what materials are used. 95% of the time they are always under a pound.

How long before I receive my piece?

Please allow about 1-4 weeks for me to get it made for you and shipped out so you can rock this baby out on the town, party, rave, festival, carnival, mardi gras, photoshoot, concert, New Years Eve, Halloween - anywhere you want to WOW people and turn heads, this is what you need!!!

NOTE: If you need it by a specific day sooner than the 2-4 week waiting period, please let me know so we can work something out. 95% of the time I can make it within the time period that you need, as soon as a next day turnaround!

What company do you use for shipping?

US ORDERS: Once it it ready, unless otherwise specified I will ship your item via USPS Priority Shipping which takes about 3-5 business days. If it is time sensitive I will send via USPS Priority express which takes 2 days to arrive. If you would like to use FedEx or UPS please let me know, additional charges will apply.

Everywhere else: I use registered mail, which takes 6-10 business days. If this is time sensitive then I can send via Global Express shipping for an additional fee and takes about 5 business days to ship as long as customs does not hold your item back. UPS and FedEx are also options for an additional fee.

Feather Mohawk: How Do I wear it? (with clip)

Detailed instructions on how to wear your feather mohawks built on a clip can be found in this video

Once it's on, you rest be assured that it will be on securely and comfortably - I've even forgotten that I have it on sometimes! Holds on tightly with a with a banana clip & hair ties (included). No headband needed! This is something you can wear to a party and swing your head in any direction without feeling like it might fall off! FUN!

Can I use UPS or FedEx instead of USPS?

Absolutely! Let me know which company you prefer to ship. Additional charges may apply.
