Paint sealer for decoys

Postby callumcuffumkillum » Fri May 17, 2013 5:14 am

I have recently started painting my own decoys and they look great! I used a good oil paint and it holds on pretty good. I cant scrape it off with my finger nails, but i'm not one to treat decoys like babies. I throw em in a bag and toss it in the boat. What is the best sealer of epoxy to protect the decoys against wear and tear? These things take to long to paint to have them beat to hell at the end of a season

Yep...shake the can up real good and spray several light coats on a dry day...not raining out. The humidity can make the finish cloudy. It will still look a bit glossy when it is dry, but the first time you get it out on the water and let it dry...and it gets some dirt on it, that shine will tone down quickly.
