Painted Osage Bow
« on: December 17, 2017, 09:59:56 am »
When chasing a ring on this Osage bow I decided fast that I wanted to give it a paint job. So once I got the shape of my bow I decided to go ahead and paint some designs in hope as I thinned and got the bow tillered out that the paint would look worn. This stick had about 2" of natural reflex in it when I started and after I got it finished it had around 1". The bow was sealed with Ream Sealer (thanks Clint for the idea)

Buffalo Horn Tip overlays
Dark Red leather wrap w/ pheasant feather
64" tip-tip
55# @ 28"
