I did on these, I am playing around with what I like.  I am used to making wood heads and I am concerned that the foam won’t take much of a beating.  So I’ll burlap a couple and apoxie sculpt a couple and see what I like.  I fully intend to abuse the ever living **** out of these decoys in cold big water, so weight is not my issue.

 That’s the joy of carving your own decoys. You can do what you want. It’s not about what other people think you should do.

Alex that was not a criticism, more a question. Before they used to sell high density heads on here and I have heard folks using wood for heads. Just trying to learn more about folks processes. That would certainly toughen them up, just thought that would make painting a bit harder.

Goldeneye hen completed.

Last one for a while. The hunt for a 14”bandsaw continues.
