    <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Here is a picture of a working GW teal I carved a few years ago.&nbsp; I have put that hobby on the back burner. With little ones running around, i just can't seem to find the time anymore.&nbsp; I also have a few bluebills and a mallard done and a Canvasback about 1/4 done.</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P>

    <P>That's a nice bird Scott.&nbsp; Did you use an airbrush on the chest spots?&nbsp; They have a nice, soft quality about them.</P>

    <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Here is the other 4 decoys.&nbsp; I need to clean and touch up on them (2 years of use and storage)</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px"><STRONG>DeWayne</STRONG> - yes that is an airbrush, I had a friend do that as I don't own one.&nbsp; I'm going to get an airbrush when I get back into making them.&nbsp; It is tooooo nice when it comes to those finishing touches.</P>

    <P style="MARGIN: 0px">I think Bills and Cans look best when they look like they are Pi$$ed at something.&nbsp; The big problem for me is that at my carving rate I would have a full spread somewhere around 2020.&nbsp;&nbsp; <IMG src="http://www.websitetoolbox.com/images/boards/smilies/eek.gif" align=absMiddle border=0></P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">I love carving working decoys, i just don't have the time.&nbsp; Maybe when the kids are a little older.</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Thanks for the + comments.</P>
