Goldeneye Decoys

Post by ShadowWalker »

FINALLY started painting three of the 6. A lot of firsts on these. First Goldeneye :lol: First sleeper. First time using plastic eyes. First time using walnut shell for the coating. First time using my own body pattern. I think these were the first ones cut on my hot wire cutter also.

Still got a lot of little things to do, but they at least are starting to look like goldeneyes.

Cleaned up and head green. I was messing with the wing area tonight and I think I was over complicating it a bit and didn't like it, so I painted over it and will do the wings tomorrow. Then after a week they will get cleared and these three will be good to go. I'm going to hold off on the other three for now so I can start the one that will travel. I think I've decided what I'm doing for that one. 8-)

Your're getting seriously good at that.

I got some decent pictures of them last year. Was wondering what kind of ducks they were.
