About this title

Synopsis:

In this book, esteemed decoy and pattern maker Bruce Burk provides time- and artist-tested patterns for 42 duck decoys. Similar in format, these companion volumes offer a wealth of patterns and techniques. Reference photographs taken from multiple angles help carvers familiarize themselves with the duck's actual features before they begin to carve. Outline-carving patterns guide intermediate carvers through the basic carving procedures. Paint-mixing instructions help create each specific duck's unique coloring. Full-color painting patterns show both the flow of the feathers and realistic, lifelike colors. This exhaustive reference includes patterns for the Black Duck, the Golden-Eye Drake, the Mallard Hen, the Lesser Scaup, and the Wood Duck Hen. Originally published in an oversized format, these new editions are a more convenient size and have a lay-flat concealed spiral binding.
