Can you paint plastic fletching?
Ok...I know this is going to sound goofy....but I just started target shooting with some cheepo kids arrows and I was wondering if I could paint the dayglo plastic fletching with a thin coat of spray model paint for plastic models or something.
Would this cause a weight or balance problem? I don't want to mess up my shooting, but until I can afford some cool more expensive arrows, I'd like to have some fun and customize them a little.
I know you can buy different fletchings and replace them, but I'm not sure I'm ready for THAT yet!
Actually, I'm considering painting the limbs on my bow too...I have a buckeye with white limbs and think they would look totally sweet black. I'm not even sure if I can do this or what I should use....LOL I'll probably end up with a black bow with silver sparkles or something and be laughed off the range! Oh well, I can't help it. I'm a girl and like things pretty

I wouldn't recommend painting anything. Your arrows the paint would change the weight and your fletching would change the way they fly probably. Painting the limbs on your bow would probably not work out too well either, that requires alot of steps and would probably not work out too good. Like others said you can use a sharpie or something along those lines.Mountain Outdoors Shooter
