    What is best paint to use? Beside cleaning the surface any type of treatment to make paint adhere?

    Would any one have extra heads {canada geese} the heads "pop" into the body?

    Will get a photo.

    THanks.

    Here is a photo, of two NOS Heads from local retailer [in Lenawee county] that I need to paint as "Sentry & feeder" Canada goose.

    I thinking about flocking the heads except for the Cheek patch and 'Filling into the head joint either bees wax or a friction tape over that joint??

    Would silver glitter dusted on the eyes be help or hindrance [or packing tape for a shine surface]??

    Anyone have old heads with the flambeau connector should or know of a source?

    Advise.

    Will post body picture shortly.

    Thanks.
