I have just finished the most productive school project ever! I went and bought some of the smallest and fattest mallard decoys I could find. Bought old used ones for 35$ for 25 of them. I painted them all to look like divers(mostly drakes) and they look awesome. Shot a couple of blue bills over em and really excited to set out the whole spread. I am wondering if anybody knows of a good finish to protect them, because the ones I use looked really shiny. They worked but that was because I buffed up the finish, but it chipped my decoys a little. Thanks for the feedback.
