You could just use arrow wraps. I have never painted an arrow though.

I kinda asked the same question a while back, about finding an arrow and what was the best color combination, after several comments, I decided on white tiger striped wraps and pink, yes pink, and white striped blazer 2" vanes, so far I haven't lost one yet and they seem to fly just fine.

Painting the whole arrow will increase the weight and will be a pain in the A.

The paint is hard to stick to the arrows, I tried cresting mine, but the paint didn't stick. I use Flo orange and white for vanes , those colors seem to stand out good for me, but I didn't had to chase but a couple last year.There is a post on the DIY section about cresting arrows

Been there - done that! Buy some wraps.... Less weight, cheaper and easier to put on and take off.

You can pain the arrow with Enamel pain, there is a thread on the DIY about painting instead of wraping the arrow. Kinda ol' school wraps..

I prefer orange, because there is nothing in nature that is orange. White is just as hard for me to find as black. As far as being seen, I've killed deer, hogs, javi, turkey, coon, and several bobcats and they never seen it

I agree with low fence here. Green is probably the worst wrap color when it comes to looking for arrows. everything is green when you look down, regardless of the time of year. I use either solid white, or white/orange fade on my wraps, and white vanes.
