    They look real good. I have some pintail decoys in need of some work and may follow your lead.

    Whatever coatings you use, make sure you dont introduce anything that will glare when wet.

    I used this site for reference pictures https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/..._Black_Duck/id

    Also seems to have a lot of great duck info in general in all species.Worth a look.

    I got into Duck hunting this year and have recently picked up a bunch of new Decoys.

    I've seen where spraying a couple of coats of flat clear enamel paint can help the Decoys looking brand new, year after year.

    Great job on painting the duck!

    Fantastic - I didn't even realize this was a "thing to do". Hey, super job on those, I'm very impressed.

    I don’t know if it’s a super common “thing to do” but it was probably easier than most guys would assume,and seems to be worth the effort,I mean time will tell how the paint and clear coat hold up but it shouldn’t be any more delicate than factory paint I’d guess.

    Thanks again guys,I’ll have to post up some before and after pics of the touch ups I’ll do on the other decoys,it’ll be a little less interesting but hopefully a good example of what a little paint refreshing can do.

    And Hey,if anybody has got any old decoys kicking around you wanna get rid of that are past their prime I’d love to take them off your hands and try experimenting with some other paint schemes.My PMs are always open I am sure we could work something out.
