Hi guys, like most if not all of you I love the looks of a crested arrows. Just can’t get myself to pay the high price for fancy arrows. So I made a crester and bought some Krylon and clear. And worked off and on on Saturday and here are the results.

Good job and you did it yourself. Most satisfying I am sure. What may I ask did you use for the arrow chuck? That’s always the hardest thing to come up with on a DYI crester.

Not too bad for the first attempt. they get better with time. try for consistency from shaft to shaft. Experiment with brushes, the right brush make a huge difference.

What Bob says. I used to save broke shafts to practice on. You can also use the practice to see which patterns suit you. If you have a Hobby Lobby near you they have a good selection of brushes in their art department.

Tom my arrow chuck is a 9/32 socket with a piece of 7/16 ID water line that slips over the socket. Then a pipe end cap 5/16 OD pushed in the water line till it bottoms out in the socket and trimmed. Better yet here’s a picture.
