I was recently bought a "paint your own flying ducks" kit.

I want to do something more imaginative than the basic-old-kitsch ducks (brown and green)

I was thinking painting a plum on one (Duck in plum), Orange on another (Duck a la'orange) and some cucumber on the other (peking duck wraps!)

BUT.....

I get the feeling there's something more imaginative out there.. something smarter and more fun.

Ideas please!!!! (The ducks and porcelain and white- I have any type of medium to decorate them with!)

Thank you!

How about basing your ducks on cartoons?!
Daffy Duck...Donald Duck...Daisy Duck etc.
Hope this helps Cheesy

If you can't convince them, confuse them.

Here's a link for some horses based on a sort of similar idea...

A nearby town sold giant sunfish statues for $1000 to area businesses, which they then decorated and entered in a contest.  The money was donated to a specific cause.  One had a sunset, one is done in mosaic, one in mirrors, one in kinda hippy era graffiti.  I think the twin cities did something similar with Charlie Brown statues too.
