Pic quality isn't the best but... This is first one painted, still have to 2nd coat white. You guys think they'll fool the resident geese? I've got several different body positions and have 57 more to paint!

Good job on the detail.

Watch out for shine but other than that they should fool birds most of the year!!!

those look good. did you hand paint the feather detail or did you make a template from the real geese? that looks real good. is it 4mm couragated plastic?

4mm corr. plastic

hand painted detail

tried template that I made and didn't like results

shot some pics of live geese on a local lake and then blew them up 11 X 14 and keep them on a board right beside my painting table, thats what I am going by. got pics of swimming, feeding, sentries, resting, etc...

it takes a while to paint, but the results are worth it!!!

could you give us paint codes that you used? did you have to mix any paint or was it all normal colors? also, how did you paint, was it an airbrush or what? what Primer and all of the good stuff. do they shine? how is the paint on them? will it hold or is it going to flake off? sorry about all of the questions, i have 3 doz homemades that i am going to paint soon and i just want to do it right!
