Nice really like the second set..

Did you dip them for the final seal coat? I didn't have a dipper n it was havoc with the silver pins stripes coming off when brushing on the clear coat.

I stained the bottom blue then stained the top black on the first set. On the second set I used blue, red and black stain. Three coats of clear Gasket Lacquer then crested. I used a final clear coat of Gasket Lacquer to seal the cresting.

The arrow I am currently working on I tried using a walnut stain and then using white gasket lacquer. Was not that thrilled with how many coats it took to get good coverage. Here is the first still got another 11 to go.
