Mark are you putting clear coat overthe paint on the glass? If so any issues with it reacting negatively with the paint? Those limbs look great with that black on there, I just started a bow with caramel glass, love how that looks.
What brand paint did ya use?

I have made a heap of bows with one clear and one colored and 90% would have the clear and veneers on belly, because i reckon thats the side the user sees mostly.

Thanks guys!  Here is a plug fer ole Kenny.  I have my order in for the December sale on colored glass.  So.... lets make some bows.

My son Noah is going to make his first one piece D/R longbow and I'm not going to look over his shoulder.  Much.

Kenny, we sanded lams Saturday.  He found out how quickly you can screw up when one pair of lams slipped on sled in sander.

Ok. Got some black gwass from ole Kenny.  Got the lams all sanded and now working on riser insert.  Hopefully glue up Saturday.  Black on back, zebra belly, walnut riser.

When I re-learn how to post pics I will get some going.

If I was doing it, I would have to put the colored glass in the middle... just not my cup of tea!  :deadhorse:
