This forum is great!

I've been carving quite a few cork and a few wood decoys over the years. Part of the appeal for me is the longevity of the cork & wood. What is your opinion on the foamers? Are they birds that I could hand down to my son some day?

Just curious.

By the way, your creativeness is refreshing. I thought I'd seen about every type of decoy already.

Woodduck, How do you neatly tuck the burlap under the bottom of the decoy (without big wrinkles). I feel like the bottoms of mine are somewhat sloppy looking. Also, have had problems with the burlap peeling back around the edges. Any way to fix the problem?

Thanks woodduck. I think the issue I had on the 2 that peeled back some was that I didnt let them dry in time. I have since mad more and havnt seemed to be an issue.

This is really cool i have never done anything like this or seen anything like this definatly worth a try.Now being that all the ones ive seen have obviously been for hunting water could you use the same process to make a field Decoy i.e. full body goose decoys has anyone ever done that. if so maybe post some pictures and let me see

Thanks

WOW!!! You have inspired me by your amazing ability! I WANT to do this! I have never carved anything in my life! LOL! But I want to start. I know I'll not turn out anything like this but I would like to think I could try! LOL! Anyway, couple questions for ya....you said you get the foam material at lowes or HD...what kind of foam is it exactly. I was just curious as to waht it is you know. You may have said already but I cant remember. Also what kind of paints do you use and where bouts do they come from as well. Like I said, I've never carved anything but I have dabbled in repainting plastic decoys so I got a little experience in that area. I'm doing some Gadwalls now and had some trouble but after seeing your techniques I think I can do better. like you or somebody said hens are harder and Gadwalls I think are harder than anything I've done, theres just alot of texture and feather detail in the drakes as well as hens. One last question, would it be better to start out with drakes, hens, divers, puddlers or what? I kinda thought I might start with some simple body shapes and color schemes in some diver species like redhead, canvasback, or bluebill. And do drakes to start off because I find them to be simpler with their basic large color patterns and not really any feather detail as far as those species go. What do you think?
Thas's better than gettin poked in the eye with a sharp object!!!

No doubt impressive work and well done. BUT, I have seen some pretty cool stuff made out of legos too. Before I invest in this, how would you imagine making some brant decoys in this manner would float (in chop etc..) Do you have any Brant or buffles in a regular pose to show? Nice work....

Very Cool Woody,
Where do you get your brant heads, or do you carve them?

One quick question, what size eyes do you use, and do you use different sizes, if so what what sizes for what birds? Ok, I guess that is three questions, but hey who's counting?
