Dulling the Finish on a Browning Cobra II
« on: February 24, 2019, 11:44:38 AM »
I picked up a Browning Cobra II and while I really like the bow,I'd like to dull the finish down to a matte type finish. Can I spray a matte finish over the gloss finish thats on the bow? Thank you for all responses

I use satin spray poly over the Tru-Oil finish I use on my selfbows. You may have to steel wool the old finish first but I don't know if that is necessary or not.
Make the most of all that comes and the least of all that goes!

Just buffing with steel wool can take off much of the gloss without cutting into the finish.
Bowhunting is "KILL and EAT" not "Catch and Release".....Semper Fi!

0000 steel wool should take care of it

I use ground pumice powder with olive oil or mineral oil and buff it out gives a smooth dull mat finish ! Leaves a smoother finish then steel wool
If you fear failure, you will never try ! But never except it!!
