do it on your own. I used rattle cans and they turned out better than them originals, and I am not a skilled painter. you just need to experiment

rustoleum white plastic primer, camo Brown and camo sand( too dark not the greyish color the breast is,get khaki intead) , rustoleum2x flat black and I hand painted the white with some extra rustoleum hand paint I had laying around. I used the method commonly seen on the internet and then painted a brush with the spray paint and painted feather detail and now some paintless hardcores look like avian x geese. there is a learning curve to misting them. buy one of those rustoleum spray gun thingy attachments. they make it alot easier to paint precisely

DSD in Lebanon will repaint decoys. At least they did last year. Need to get them there before they get production going. I hope they still do because I have some HC and DSD that need work.

Blue collar decoys also does repaints and I've used them on several decoys of mine. They look good. Give them a look. They are in Idaho. So if your in Oregon they are pretty close to you.

Give this a try, It works better with regular oil based paint but i have done it with rattle can also. take a cheap 2'' paint brush and brush out or (move) your colors. Spray on brush out, light coats. Shoot a small area then use the brush to spread it out. This will help soften the line between colors , like a poor mans airbrush.

Here is one of my 30 year old Flambeau Field or Water that I did with just a few sprays with paint from Wally World. The head is a Bigfoot Floater Stubby which will be attached with toggle eyebolts. I can do an entire spread for way less than $45. :yes:
