Hello Friends.
The title pretty much says it all. I`m looking for something better to write on my glass bows (logo, draw weight etc..). What do you guys use?
And when it the best time to write it down? before/after first coat of finish?

Indian ink or modern acrylic equivalent. You can get whatever style nib you want. It will look professional.

Thanks Mike

We tested several things with the Thunderbird Epoxy this was by far the best thing we found.

You worked to hard and paid a lot of money for that new bow. Why would you trust protecting it to anything less than Thunderbird Epoxy!!!

I have a pen from another company that has a different nib or point. The one from Thunderbird that I have had back when Dave was still around makes a much better line.

I do it after the second coat then dry the ink with a heat gun, that sets it before coating with water based Polyurethane. A big smear will appear without drying it.
