I read some 15 year old posts here about interference paint-and found it is a strange paint to work with. I mixed in some black, painted it very thin on the head, dusted it with black spray paint, topped it on a hot day with Krylon sealer. The green seems subtle but visible. Should fool ducks.
    Now to try this to touch up and repair some drake mallard heads.
    Recommendations /photos welcome.

    They look good and will certainly work to take ducks. Nice job.

    I use a similar wet blend technique using a black base coat and either green interference or violet. They can be dry brushed as well.

    The birds look good. Happy painting.
