Camo tan, aftermarket painted Hoyt TD3 H20 riser complements of a complex trade with Steve Long and Aroadick. Silver Sky limbs. Planning on attending a 3D shoot this summer and everyone will be showing off their best in trad gear.

I have the nice leather clad Thunderhorn Boa quiver. I am looking for some ideas to dress up the rest of the bow to blend in more with the other archers, almost all of whom will be shooting wood bows.

Suggestions on how to paint the riser?

How do I dress up the limbs?

Good idea Marc, I have used the Alaska archery limb lycra in snakeskin, the longbow one will cover the limbs and you can pull it down over the riser, great disguise. ;)

I've not used them but I like the limbsations on other people's limbs.
I WOULD use them.
I've used the ALASKA Bowhunting spandex ones Pete alludes to, I like them.

I really like the limbsations, I put a set of copperheads on some TTBM limbs about a year ago. Really easy to install and they've held up well.

Thanks all. Any advice on painting the riser?

Steve - do you think that was factory original paint?

I don't think that was factory color, but I can't be sure, I remember thinking it looked a bit soft, like it would scuff up easy.
Is that the one that was kind of light pale green or tan color? Colors are so hard to describe......
Blinky, did you see the Quinn riser Jerseyboy painted for me? Maybe it will give you some ideas....

Lauer - It's two part and doesn't require the baking or heat to cure - it's extremely durable when compared to regular spray paint - and I like brown!
