    1. Thanks....the arrows are a little bit fiddly, their just piano wire and folded paper glued ( inserted ) onto the end. Takes a few practice runs at it before mastering, but do few of them at the same time.

    1. I'm not sure what gauge piano wire I've used, just kept pulling out bits from my spares box till I found one that looked fine enough for an arrow shaft. The feathers are just paper attached onto the wire with tweezers and white glue. I set them aside to dry, and then go back with a "sharp" craft knife and trim them up so they're all neat and " fletched like ". Drill some holes stick them in and paint.......done.
