About 3 years ago someone stole 9 dozen of my restle mallard decoys.. So i got really frustrated and pretty much stopped duck hunting. Now I am retired with plenty of time on my hands and was thinking about making some decoys. My buddy has a body and head mold and everything you need to make the decoys. My thoughts are this. When decoys are made with white beads and they get shot up or banged up you see the white styrofoam underneath unless they are coated with burlap or something, which I dont want get into again. So is there a dye you can use for the eps beads or can you buy colored beads. I was thinking brown or black.
