The Reel Wings Bird Vision UV Decoy Paint takes your decoys to the next level with an even more realistic look. Birds enjoy sharper vision than us, allowing them to see certain light frequencies, including ultraviolet, which we cannot see. This is the main reason you may be having a harder time decoying, because your decoys are absorbing UV and not reflecting UV. This causes your decoys to look gray and unrealistic, not white like realistic feathers. Now that has changed with the introduction of Bird Vision UV Decoy Paints!
With this revolutionary UV paint, you can repaint your decoys to make them look more realistic to waterfowl. Comes in white and black and you can make your own gray if you mix the two. Comes in one quart size.
UVision is a paint system that matches the reflectance of feathers in a full range of light visible to birds, which includes ultraviolet.
Humans see three primary colors (red, green and blue). All colors visible to humans are blends and combinations of these three colors. Deer and mammals see 2 primary colors (green and blue) and blends and combinations of these 2 colors. Blaze orange is worn by deer hunters because deer cannot distinguish this color from other woodland colors.
Birds see 4 primary colors (red, green, blue and ultraviolet). All colors visible to birds are blends and combinations of these 4 colors. Humans cannot see this 4th color as we do not have the 4th cone in our eyes. Birds see the same 3 colors as humans see, plus the additional color in the UV spectrum.
