      Subject: Painting bands on arrows

      I am helping a new SCA archer to make her first set of arrows. She would
      like to paint a blue band or two on the shaft, what's the best type of
      paint for this? Any hints on the best methods?

      Sorry to be so slow in responding, but the D*^#@# computer was acting up for
      a few days. I use Fletch Lac to cap-dip my stuff and Testors model paints
      straight out of the bottle for stripes. Deft Wood Finish is a good and
      compatible clear sealer. Note: these are all lacquer based and LaeBeth is
      right, they reek! I have access to a large facility that is unoccupied for
      most of the time. That's where I do stinky projects in winter. Summertime
      (average temps over 50 and mostly dry) I dip and paint in the back yard.

      Baron Nigel has mentioned household and regional cresting. Robert Thorne
      and I both use a varient of the Greenwood Company hood markings on our
      personal arrows. The Green/White/Red/White looks really sharp, IMO.
