Well, here are some pics of the decoys I am repainting. They are a life size Herter's decoy. Got the decoys from a friend that got them on trade. About a month after we used them, the paint started chipping off. Well, this was right after Herter's went out of business so we couldn't warranty anything. We have used the decoys as a filler but I needed to repaint them. Here is the result.
The left picture is a decoy in its original paint and unscrubbed. The right one with the head missing is after I scrubbed them to get all the chipping paint off and the back one is the final product. It was easy to do and took maybe a half hour to do, and I assume it will go faster now that I kinda know what I am doing.
Any improvements needed? I will take any criticism on them you want to give.
