Fully Flocked Decoys

Postby A_Winnie » Wed Sep 04, 2013 8:38 pm

I was thinking Tanglefree fully flocked mallards are 144.99/6 at Cabela's but I could go buy a dozen Flambeau Storm Front decoys at a local dealer for 38.99 and flock them myself and it would only cost a couple dollars per decoy. Do Y'all think this is a good idea? Also have any of you thought about doing this?

Aunt Betty does it all the time with his old flambeaus. They come out looking pretty good.

Have you fully flocked a decoy before? Have access to an airbrush?

I flocked the heads of my old mallard decoys. Did it with a brush and a sifter w/ flocking. I would not be able to do the same if I wanted fully flocked, or I would but it would be more work than I'm willing to do. Doing it this way you'd have to do it in several stages (which is why I asked about an airbrush).

If you have ample time, give it a shot.

You'll need an airbrush. If you have that, give it a go.
