Decoy Heads

Postby Canadian Quacker » Wed Oct 12, 2005 6:08 pm

Forgot to mention to get some of the Millenium Green paint. Best drake Mallard and Goldeneye head paint around. Isn't very good unless there is a green undercoat already but it catches the real dark green look to those heads.

Or you could just get the already painted heads.

Not wanting to start anything but by using the Millenium Green over the existing paint makes for an excellant, accurate head color. The original factory paint is too crayon like for me. The Millenium gives that dark green, bluish tinged with just a hint of sparkle look, an amazingly correct color in sun or shade.

:laughing: .......do you really think the ducks can tell the difference??? Like I said before, if the ducks are close enough to tell the difference in green, see small paint chips, etc. they are close enough to shoot.

Cobra where do you buy that Millennium paint it sound great
Personally speaking I don’t paint my decoys for the ducks I paint them for my self. I want the most life like decoy I can paint.

It's a Herters brand latex paint that Cabela's sells.
