    Is there a place to get a stencil or Scheme lay out for repainting? Also what's the best paint to use to get longevity out of ?

    I’ve read on another thread guys were using Krylon mud brown for the back and Krylon khaki for the front/chest.

    What species are you repainting? You'll probably have to do some freehanding.

    It's pretty easy to make your own for the larger areas but you will still need to do some brush work for the smaller areas and details. Mallards are super easy to do using rattles cans for the gray, brown and black butt. Spray most or all of the decoy gray, spray the breast brown and free hand the wings and back, then spray the butt black. Then all you have to do with the brush is the head, bill, light gray or even white marking in front of the black, the white ring around the neck and some blending or dry bushing over some areas.
