I can confirm that those old decoys are lethal on teal
You did a good job of sealing those old styrofoam birds. The glue to firm them up and the primer. When you said your were going to use Parker’s, my first thought was wrong paint. Under most circumstances oil based paint will melt styrofoam. But you solved the problem. I would have used acrylic paint, you did a helluva good job.
I think they look very good , whats more the attitude to try something new and adapt things to suit your situation and requirements is what makes wildfowling so interesting and addictive , bang on .
They'll work, but the primaries and tertials on a mallard are dark brown, not gray.
(Maybe you weren't done with them yet...?)
I see you have an eye for details, and hope this helps you.
Looks really good, I have a couple dozen of them. I need to upgrade them also.
Now you're one of us. What's next???
They look great and will hunt just fine. Like a couple others have said there are a few things you could do to make them more "realistic" but that won't effect the way they decoy ducks one bit. You give 10 guys a decoy and tell them to paint a mallard you will get 10 different paint jobs. If they get close enough to tell the paint job is not 100% accurate shoot them!
Speaking from a carver and painter's point of view the brown primaries are icing on the cake. Otherwise, they are spot on.
