Ok, I keep reading about this EzdecoyMaker stuff and what I want to know is does it work? Has anyone tried it? Is it worth the money, or is it a scam to get my money :?:
The web site is ezdecoymaker.com

I tried it. It takes a while for one decoy. The process is not suited for floating or full-body decoys, only shells. It is very hard to get two haves to line up.

If you have any money at all you should just buy decoys.

If you want to try it, I'll the directions and remain glue I have for cheap.

i visited the picture page at the ez site, and for the duck decoys you will be making, you can pick up a dozen for th eprice of the kit. Now if you were able to turn out some fullbodies, it would be worth it, but with the pictures of the dekes on the site, you can buy already painted same price.

my 2 cents

what are they using for the glue and deke material? Some one was talking about paper pulp with resin? I am interested in the process but his site does not tell you much until you buy into it.

I got a friend to lend me an old beat up full body. I'm working on making a greatstuff deek. I've got a box that will just fit the entire deek in it. I taped up the deek (spraying some silicon (wd40)on it). filling up the box with that "GREAT STUFF Insulation". Once it stopped filling the box, I had to split the box in 2 but I got a good mold to use. I'm trying to decide on what to use as the filler now. maybe more great stuff.. Any suggestions?

Yeah, been there, done that...I ordered it and felt like an idiot afterwards. I would say it border lines on a scam...I was certainly not impressed by what I read.

It says on the website that it is not paper mache, but in my opinion, it certainly is.

For the time and effort involved, I would never take something like that on.

Tried the system and made some shells that worked fine until they got wet..... I put fiberglass on some and varnish on others very hard to waterproof.. Also the "glue" you use also works great as mouse bait. Stored my decoys that Ispent a lot of time on and the mice swiss cheesed em.Now they look like a second grade art project gone horribly wrong.Save your money,buy good decoys.

We all use it here and it works great. We use if for full body floating decoys. If you follow the instructions you will have perfect, waterproof decoys for a tenth of the cost of anything you can buy. I have been using if for I guess about 6 years now and I still have most of my first batch here. The rest of them probably got shot or went home with my clients. I couldn't afford to stay in business if it wasn't for ezdecoymaker. I would wager that none of these guys have actually tried it. Ezdecoymaker works just like the website says it does and it works fine for full body floaters. I originally bought this from all the good word of mouth from a forum years ago, and it's still worth every penny.

:D oh hell yea i agree. ezdecoymaker is great. no way we could afford the kind of spread with any other decoys. some of our members carve decoys so we use the mold making ideas that the guy has so we can make our own decoys with his system from the decoys our guys carve. pretty slick. i can mold a floating decoy in ten minutes, but the waterproofing takes a few coats so that we do in batches of 3 dozen so that the dry time is used doing more molding. we refuse to pay twenty five buchs each to buy big foots so we made our own mold with ezdecoymaker and make our own and yea we make them with the paper and glue molding stuff the guy suggests and it works fine. he also teaches you other tricks about decoy molding in general.

This is a good way to make floating snow goose decoys as well as full body field snow goose decoys. My brother went ahead and made the molds as taught in the manual but uses one of the resins that you learn about along with the paper technique. There is a lot more to ezdecoymaker than just the one molding method. Yes. I agree. If you don't try it, you are really missing the ball here. My god man if you don't like the paper method then for heaven's sakes make the molds like the man says and mold styrofoam decoys in them like he suggests. Apparently some of the guys that are sqwalk'n here didn't really buy it at all. I make decoys so damn tough that i can stand on them. And if you make them right, mice ain't going to eat them. That fella just didn't use the technique that suited his needs. He should have gone on to try one of the other ones that comes along with it. Thanks for listening to an old coot's two cents worth.

Are all posting from the same IP. So essentially it's the same person.

I'm closing the topic.
