View Full Version : Bigfoot Feather Detail
06-16-2003, 06:21 PM
My brushin skills are getting a better. Just finished my 1st pair of foots.
1. Other than Sahara Tan what colors do you use for the feather detail?
2. How far in on the feather detail do you paint? 1/8" 1/4" ?
3. What can I add to dull the paint?
For reference in using Golden airbrush paints.
Body - Raw Umber Hue -(really like that color for the body.)
Feather detail - Titan Buff - tanish color
Butt - Carbon Back

If you go down to the bottom when you enter the decoy forum you can change the set-up from the last 30 days to the begining and you will find a lot of posts on painting decoys. These should help with your questions. You can add some black to your chocolate brown and darken it up a little. The color doesn't matter that much because if it is dark you just use less because you can control the shades with the trigger finger. Don't think in terms of a solid color because you are not trying to cover up the base, just enhance or add detail to the factory base color. Remember that practice thing I was talking about? I don't know about the other paints but if you think the color is close it will work. I just did this with those colors to show everyone they could paint right out of the bottle and the taxidermy paint is a whole lot cheaper than regular bird paints.
