PATTERNS ARE NOW FOR SALE for #1, #2 and #3 Books CHAMPIONSHIP WATERFOWL PATTERNS Vol. 4
For thirteen consecutive years Pat Godin competed in the World Class Shootin’ Rig category at the Ward World Championship Wildfowl Carving Competition. In those years he had six top three placements including a World title in 2001. In this new Volume Four of his popular series Championship Waterfowl Patterns Pat has compiled the patterns for twelve of those thirteen years. Although these designs were originally created for “high end” hunting decoys, they can very easily be modified to accommodate the making of simple gunners or, at the other extreme, very refined decorative decoys.
Volume Four features:
Five information packed pages of instructional material with discussions about:
* Designing a Shootin’ Rig Decoy
* Durable Design and Construction
* Painting Techniques for Gunning Decoys (Textural Effects, Combed Vermiculation, Three-dimensional Painting)
