I need to know that also. I painted some homemade silouettes last year and they worked this year on cloudy days, but when the sun came out they glared if you looked at them from the right angle. They flared some birds from us for sure. I am considering buying the Herter's paint kit for Canadas. If I like the color, I can go to my local paint store and match it.
For the base colors, get some cans of flat house paint,-(must be flat!), oil based is more durable but harder to cleanup. Just roll it on with a roller. For the details, feathers, cheak patches, est. cut out stensils out of cardboard. As for colors to use, use the real thing as a guide. Look at some photos of real geese or some pictures of commercial silos. What do you guys use for stakes? I have made some great lookin silos out of 1/4inch paneling but I can not figure out how to stake them up.
Take a picture of a goose or commercial silo into the hardware store and compare the caps of spray paint or paint samples with the picture. This should give you a good idea of what a goose should look like.
