I'll get this one started.  I'm slow but hope to have this guy ready for paint next week'ish.  A little flummoxed on the tail but working through it.  I'll post final pics when finished

Thanks Larry.  He's approx 18" from chest to tail and will be hollowed out as soon as I can finish the tail.

Been working on this tree duck after work for last couple of weeks. Still working on the paint. Hollowed White Cedar, oils.....  Any recommendations welcomed. Jeff

 Thanks Willy for showing the sponging techniques you were doing at Ohio show. it was fun to do this one using the technique and may do my other dekes this way. Its my first wooden carved duckling with head carved and body together all from same block and not carved separately. Hand carved half and power carved the other half, no keel because its going to a lil girl for her room.it was fun to do, I really enjoyed the sponge technique painting style.

That is cool, Marty.
Jump shooting ducks off a pond is kind of like prostitution -- something more to be pitied than outlawed.

Ok, here's an unfinished black duck that I started in March, but then a bunch of other stuff got in the way of finishing it, AND then, I started experimenting with finishing it. 

Anyone care to guess how it's constructed and finished so far  (I plan to paint with Traditions acrylic).

Tony is it cork with wood tail and head? Here is an unfinished paulownia hollow ruddy.

That's a cool tree duck, Jeffrey!

I like the duckling, Marty, and the ruddy is starting to shape up pretty good Larry.

Tony that's a latex primed restle coated bird if I ever saw one :D

old style, new style


Red breasted mergansers





And kind of decoy related, as I couldn't work on decoys till I got this finished for the wife and her pet. It is 6 1/2' X 6'

Good looking birds, Craig!  And then there's the snake cage, cool cage, brave man to marry a girl that keeps snakes as pets :D
