Paint a Genesis Bow
The Genesis bow, manufactured by Brennan Industries and widely used by both beginners and experts is the official bow of the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP). Customizing your Genesis bow with a new paint job can be an exciting and creative experience. Painting your Genesis bow a unique shade can allow your personality to shine, not to mention make your bow stand out when you are practicing in the field.
1. Place several paper bags on a table to protect it, and then place the bow on the bags. You will be using spray paint, so make sure you are working in a well-ventilated area or outdoors.
2. Prepare your Genesis Bow for painting. Cover the Genesis cam and the idler wheel. The Genesis cam is the wheel-shaped object at the top of the bow, and the idler wheel is the wheel at the bottom of the bow. These two objects hold the bow strings in place. Cover the Genesis cam and idler wheel and the three black areas on the body of the bow (the places where you normally hold the bow) with painter’s tape. Make sure all of these areas are covered completely.
3. Spray a thin layer of paint on the bow. Wait 20 minutes, then spray another thin coat of paint. Allow the first side of the bow to dry for 24 hours.
4. Apply a thin layer of spray paint on the other side of the genesis bow. Wait 20 minutes before applying a second coat of paint. Allow the second side to dry for 24 hours.
5. Remove the painter’s tape. Both sides should be completely dry.
