Decided that I wanted to try some footed arrows. Found some shafts that I liked (at a price I could afford).... cedar shafts with a purple heart footing. Thought that brass tips should look pretty nice on them.
Added a purple heart reinforced selfnock and had some feathers spliced. Not too sure about the spliced feather idea though as the base thickness varies quite a bit due to the splicing process.... makes gluing them on a bit of a challenge at times.
4 coats of dipped gasket lacquer. They seem almost too pretty to shoot.
Still have a half dozen of the shafts left.... want to experiment with cresting before making them up.
