First Time Diver Repaint

Postby idahobass96 » Sun Oct 28, 2012 6:59 pm

first time repainting old decoys. found most of the info on what paints to use and other stuff on this forum. theres a wealth of information out there, you just have to spend some time finding it all. let me know what you think. They are all golden eye because thats what around my area the most. i was going to do some bluebills but decided against it.

They look awesome. I have to make some divers. But the crappy decoys, on Craigslist are over priced

I don't think the green paint on the heads is necessary but I think it adds a little detail and makes them look better. These look awesome!

Agreed... This look really good. I also agree with the idea you don't need the green. However if you have the time go for it. keep up the great work :thumbsup:

Those look like factory deeks. Amazing
