  • Latest duck projects

    Latest workings, pintail and green-wing teal. On the pintail I found that painting, sanding, panting, sanding, etc leaves a much better final finish and also makes it much easier to fine-tune the detail on the feathers.

    I don't carve ducks, but looks fine to me and the next step are decoys? Nice composition also.

        My first foray into carving was duck decoys, and I'm still a sucker for waterfowl carvings. Needless to say, yours look much better than mine ever could. Great work!

          The ducks look quite good. Did you start with a prepared blank?
          Years ago, while attending a conference at the NASA Wallops Island facility, I discovered "the world's largest duck decoy factory" in Oak Hall, VA. Most of the decoys were wood and intended as household decorations not bird hunting. They had kits for those who wanted to do their own - partially shaped birds with glass eyes ready to apply, They even had some seconds with defects in the wood parts. I ended up buying several kits, and have the duck, merganser, and goose even now.

            Nice looking ducks. I started carving because I wanted to carve a duck. I still haven't given it a shot.
