This arrow is quite large compared to my height because I wanted it to be elven size :D
Step 1: Materials
• Silver, gold and dark green paint
• Gold wire
• knife to carve the wood dowel and shape the feather
• 1 long yellow turkey feather - the one I had was 30cm and I managed to get all 3 arrow tails from it (You may need 2 feathers depending on the size and shape of the feather)
• Strong glue (I use super glue because I'm impatient)
• Plenty of reference pictures.
Step 3: Arrow head and end
Carve the arrow head shape from one end of the dowel.
One area of the arrow head is widen than the dowel so use wood filler to form the parts that protrude.
Note that the arrow head isn't rounded, but oval shaped when looking from the tip down. (look at the cross section in the pic).
Sketch out the engraved pattern and trace over it firmly with a pen or pointy something to leave an indentation.
To get the end (nock) in line with the arrow head, stick some string to the tip and pull it to the end where the nock will be.
Mark it as 1cm long and cut out the slit with a hack saw or rotary tool.
Paint the arrow head silver, the shaft dark green and the engraved pattern gold.
