The ones I make are mini decoys, that one is a "tiny decoy". That mallard turned out great!!

Here is another kind of decoy that I have made. This one has a 3/4" board for the base and another 3/4" board for a vertical riser and a separate piece for the head (so the section would be an upside down T shape). Then hoops of wire are attached to the sides of the base board and over the riser and into holes on the other side of the base board. Then canvas is stretched over this and tacked to the wood. Spraying water on the stretched canvas will make it shrink tightly to the frame work. It is then painted in the conventional way, which further shrinks the canvas. The advantages of this method is that it used much less and smaller pieces of wood, as well as being lighter to carry out to the field in big quantities. I mounted this one on a base and made it into a lamp. It makes kind of an interesting looking goose decoy. This style was used in the early 1900s in parts of the country that did not have large trees to make full size solid body decoys.

That's cool. And with that technique and your talent...I think you're ready to make an airplane :)

I had to make another canvasback decoy from wire and canvas to replace the one I gave away. He has just taken up residence with the rest of the flock.
