Ha ha - if Sheldon duck hunted...
If you are going to do it, do it right.
Well rubberhead I did it. Got 6 avian x back waters set em in the sun at 90 deg today and painted em with matte clear. I think it brings out the color more. Thanks for the tip.
Hey rubberhead , tell me about clearcoat on flocked heads decoys?
Ha ha - I don't have any flocked decoys so...no clue.
The best flat clear is found at hobby shops, it's called Testor's Dull Cote. You can put it on "wet" and it will still be dead flat. Just apply it when the humidity is low. Two dozen decoys? If you can't put out or pick up two dozen decoys in 20 minutes, then you should be playing pitch instead of duck hunting. The only positive reason for leaving decoys out all season is laziness, and there are lots of very good reasons not to.
Hmmmm...if no one can get to your spot, how do you plan to put out decoys there?
+1 on the testors dull-coat. It does slightly darken the colors, but it is dead flat, no shine.
10-4 rubberhead I just bought a half dozen to try , was just wondered. I'll have to try the dull cote , see how it works
Where can TESTOR'S Dull cote be ordered through ? It's better than KRYLON ?
Totally understand about flat colors for decoys and I'm in agreement with that, however 2 things come to mind. Some ducks have iridescent head and wing feathers, and I have read that some market hunters painted their blocks gloss with great success.
