Default How do you waterproof fletchings?

I'm shooting Rayzr feathers and the forcast has showers in it for our shoot this weekend. So my question is, how do I waterproof these feathers?

Get yourself some Bohning or Gateway feather dry powder.

Walmart has a spray for waterproof of tents, this is cheaper and seems to work very well for feathers.

The other is a spray for WB rests for making the fibers of the rest waterproof it says on the can for feathers as well as the rest...

Also I carry a plastic bag to cover my feather fletchs in the quiver on a rain day. I keep shooting the same arrow till the feathers look like a wet cat...
