I just got a whole cr_p load of used pintail and mallard decoys.  They all are in need of some real help. Can anybody give me some tips on cleaning and repainting?  What types and colors of paints?  Thanks for the help!

Cablea's (www.cabelas.com) has decoy painting kits for mallards and pintails complete with diagrams for where the various colors go.

I re-painted my dekes a couple years back, had a lot of fun and I was really happy with how they turned out.

Make sure they're clean and flake free before you start painting. Also scrub them down with laquer thinner to remove all oily residue.

I sprayed my finished dekes with a satin finish, "diamond" hard clear coat to give them an extra layer of protection.
