I've been out in the shop re-painting my decoys. I have dozens of wood and plastic decoys so I work on some of them each spring. I've been using Herters paints for years. I mix my own colors out of the ones they have available. The Herters paints are available through Cabelas. One thing I have noticed is the color of the birds we have up here before migration. Most are still in eclipse plumage. I paint my decoys to match. Dull them down. add more gray/brown feathers etc. It seems to work alot better during hunting season. The new fancy paint jobs look nothing like the birds we actually see in the marsh during Sept. Anyone else using duller decoys? or is everyone just pulling them outta the box and tossing them on the pond?
