    After they are on and dry blue painters tape will lift them right off the skin.

    Don’t worry and the color. The same color you see on the scales in on the skin.

    Dry skins are what you want. Not tanned.

    Titebond 2 or 3 will hold the skins right to the bow.

    Afterwards, I always sprayed Helmmen’s Spar varnish in satin on the skins to prevent UV damage.


    I’m following this thread because I think skins on a bow are pretty. My Wife doesn’t like snakes period, so it’s not apt to happen to my bow.:?

    I am curious as to why you have to remove the scales, & what would happen if they weren’t removed?
