Bond Brand Decoys?

Postby PharmD10 » Wed Aug 24, 2005 4:55 pm

I've been ebaying it up lately, and noticed some Bond decoys for sale for pretty cheap. They dont look too appealing to me, but just wanted to see if anyone had used them or had an opinion about them...

I used to have a doz of their pintail dekes....nice solid decoy. I don't believe I had any paint probs either. They look and work fine, just as well as any other decoy on the market.

Funny thing, I am selling Bond decoys I have on ebay right now. Got them for free with my cases of shells.

They make great divers when painted correctly.

Hey, did you grab the blind bag with the shells when we left the truck?

I think my dekes will be divers pretty quick.

KS thats not a bad idea making the Bonds into divers. They are smaller in comparison to most other dekes and when you use that new Fusion paint by Krylon, the look pretty good. Just get some flat or "matt" clear from a hobby store and your in business.

I used the fusion white, black and hunter green, all in the satin. They have lots of colors in the satin. I used the green to lightly over spray the black heads of the blue bills. Notice in my pic on this thread how I did that. I used regular model paints for the eyes and bills and put in on with a small model paint brush. If you do this be sure NOT to use the water based model paints. Once it was all dry I over sprayed the decoy with the matt (flat) clear coat. I used a propane torch to flash them first.

What color for the bill paint, and what exactly do you mean by flashing them with a propane torch?

I used a sky blue model paint color with black accents. By flashing, I mean using the torch to go over the decoy. Not melting or burning the paint off, just getting the impurities and "oils" off. If they're dirty, use a wire brush first and knock all the loose dirt and paint off then flash them.
The eyes are a gloss yellow with black pupils.
