1. These are the supplys you need to crest arrows the fast way. You can build a motor or use a cordless drill to turn the arrow and a short 4 inch 2X4 with a V notch cut in it to stabilize the arrow.
But these are the tools I have.

2. I use painters tape. It makes clean lines and comes off easy.

4. White spray Lacquer (Ace Hardware) pints and quarts of paint are hard to come buy. To crest the right way you use a dipping tube.
But done right spraying is just as good.

Default Painting on carbon shafts

very informative article! In your pics it looks like you are using alum arrows, can you also paint on carbon ones? I want to crest up my beeman bowhunters and wasnt sure if the paint would stick to the carbon, would I need to use a primer? How well do the vanes stay on, since they are now glued to a layer of paint v.s. the actual shaft?
