Face masks are a hassle, but face paint seems like more of a hassle....it's a couple more things you have to have and do on each trip, and the more you can simplify and streamline all that gear the better.

I have one of the mesh face masks that's attached to a baseball cap, and I've really liked that. The hat supports/holds the mask, so no strap around your head, the mask is loose around your face, no slipping down or around, easy to pull down if you're dipping/calling/grab a drink (or call right though the mesh in a pinch) and then it'll pop back up, easy to take on and off, the baseball hat will fit over a beenie (or two), the brim gives you something to pull down if you're looking towards the sun, etc.

Simple, cheap, easy and quick, and comfortable. Just a thought.

Also difficult to shoot well while wearing one. I've tried everything on the market and still come back to a simple mesh mask worn tight against the face.
the only problem with face paint is that....if you apply it properly; not just three slashes on the cheek, it takes a week to get it all off......

I have been using cork for about 15 years.
Cheap and works fine.
I do use a hat and neck gator to cover up as much as I can.

Gaiter is the way to go. I never can find one that fits perfect. Off season project to make own in Max-4D and white. No one makes a white one which is appalling.

Look at the buff brand gators, they are designed to keep the sun off you in the tropics, very light weight, you don't notice them at all. Fly fishing stores carry them.

Use a piece of cork. Like a wine cork. Burn it with a lighter and rub it on your face. Much easier than paint and easier cleanup. You could also use a mesh turkey facemask with the cork

I used to use cork but I stopped because everyone I knew at the boat ramp would make fun of me. I usually wear a face mask now but it sucks because face masks and calling don't mix.

Haters gonna hate...I actually use the duck commander warpaint not just to give people something to talk about. It don't really bother me because I shoot more ducks in a week than they do in a year.

To save time and money use Sharpies. Permanent for days.

If remembering the war paint is too much, get your face tattooed. :)

Using face paint to hunt ducks doesn't make you look like a clown...not at all. Image
