    I replaced all the old faded decoys this season and gave the worn ones to my son’s friend who needed them for his farm pond hunts.

    Of course, I thought by buying new I’d not have to be bothered with repainting the old ones but my son and his friend asked me for help.

    What’s the best method and paint for re-doing old plastic decoys?

    Buy new ones.


    But, if you must, clean and brush all the crap off an get good primer coat on.  Then Cabelas has kits that come with directions.

    The cheapest Wal-Mart spray paint does good. Solid black bodies really stands out too.

    Cabelas sells the stuff, G&H makes a decoy paint kit as well.  The prep is the biggest process, just like most other painting projects.  I would try a few different primers, and paints, to see what works best.  I think Cornbread does quite a bit of painting on his decoys.  at least from what I remember.  Plastic primer in the rattle can might work ok.
