Andy, when you look closely at the feather detail, you will cringe-trust me on this point!

That would be so cool!  Don't overextend yourself though because I know how busy all of you are with that show.

If I pick on you it is a good thing....If I dont pick on you is when you need to worry ;)

Wish I still had my first.  My dad sold the first 4 bluebills I made when I was 12 or 14 and brought me back $40!  I've been hooked ever since.

This is my first decoy. I finished it about a month ago. It is EPS and Restle coated.

I am not a foamer so is EPS something you carve or inject or styrofoam balls you heat up or what?  Im lost on that stuff.

EPS is beads that are placed in a mold and the mold is boiled, correct?

EPS goes in a mold and is boiled. It is a great place to start making decoys. Very forgiving.

I carved my fist when I was 15.  Did a few after that and got out of it for a good while.  Too busy chasing skirts.  I gave this one away back then to my now in laws.  I think their dog chewing up the bill might be an improvement.  Purdy aint it...

I was digging around in the barn today and I came across this decoy.

solid White cedar,painted with acylics

This guy was my 1st wood decoy,a real beauty, made back in 2008 when I was looking for something to get into when I retire.

Dig that cool tail section

I guess after seeing him, I have improved a little bit from then.

This is about 1980...carved out of a couple of 2x4s, painted with house paints and acrylics. My dad owns it.

Just found mine in a box today.  Thinking it must have been mid-80s

I'm not a great carver but I play one on the internet.  :)

Here's my first. I knew nothing about making decoys when I made it. The paint blistered and it floated on its side! It has since been poorly repainted.
