      A:

      This a good deep penetrating dye that is used (intended for) leather but
      works well on wood. I brush on with foam brush wipe with steel wool &
      repeat. I have used varnish and shellac over it with no trouble & have
      used it on spruce, larch and mahogany arrows. I see no reason it would not
      work with your bow.

      Yes, it will stain the wood of the bow as well.

  • Q:

      A:

      Stain then seal.  The sealant will keep the stain protected.  If you seal, then stain, you will not get good results.  Stain is not like paint, it works by penetrating the wood.

      A:

      I stained the shafts prior to applying a few coats of lacquer. I found it contained a lot of pigment but i added two coats of stain anyway. It is water based and some straightening of the shafts was needed after applying and drying. Wait at least an hr before applying lacquer or blushing will occur. These colors are vivid but the grain is still visible, good stuff.

      A:

      A small lint free rag or brush can be used to apply the stain then wait a minute and then wipe the access stain off. To get the correct shade you may have to apply a second coat of stain to the shaft. After it dries follow up with a sealer coat.

      A:

      Lightly sand the bare wood shaft with fine sandpaper or Scotchbrite© , then
      stain. Let dry overnight in a warm area. Your sealing coat of finish will
      be applied over the stained shaft. For me, I do that light sand again.
      Water based stains and finish will raise the wood grain a little. The
      sanding makes them smooth.
      If you are going to apply a painted crown to the nock end of the shaft, do
      not stain there. Apply your sealing coat over that area also, to prevent
      the wood from showing through your painted crown.

      A:

      The idea is for the stain to penetrate the wood of the shaft. You should stain first then seal. If you seal first you will inhibit the stain's ability to penetrate the wood.

  • Q:

    what kind of sealer should I use to seal the shafts? oil or water based?
    Asked on 9/1/2013 by Archer from Shakopee MN

      A:

      water based. depends on the esired effect and base coat though. I use
      leather dye and gel stains for a natural redish wood grain look, then use a
      water based polyurethane coat, either satin, gloss, or high gloss. Paints,
      laquers and enamels will also benefit from a water based sealent. It weighs
      less, is affordable, easy to find, and does no interupt the other
      coatings. If you wana get fancy use the floor sealant by minwax or
      Rustoleum, it does not produce as many bubbles and does not require sanding
      in between applications. Furthermore it dries in one hour and can get
      another coat!

      I have used both oil and water based sealer. I only will use water based from this point on due to clean-up and the ease of use.

      A:

      It is highly recommended to seal your arrow to protect it from wear and tear by targets and mother nature.

    I want a deep and dull pitch black for my arrow shafts will this stain do that?

      A:

      It will be some of the darkest we can offer for a black. Look at putting a satin finish over it to really deepen the color.

      You will not have any problems with this stain with any sealer as long as you let the stain fully dry overnight before you put the sealer on.

  • Q:

    Is this "aniline dye" that comes in a powder to be mixed with water yielding much more than 4 ounces? If not, how many arrows will one 4 oz bottle stain? Thanks for the feedback
    Asked on 1/18/2011 by woodarrow from ny

    1 answer

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      This dye is already a liquid that has a very dark pigment. you can thin this with more water if you would like a lighter stain. Depending on how dark you want the shaft to be will determine how many arrows you will be able to do with one bottle. On average you will be able to 2-3 dozen shafts.
