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.

That's how I got a 13" pecker.

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.
