Question Paint schedules for some uncommon decoys

I would like a source of a paint schedule of a duck such as a Mandarin.I have a taxidermy mount but there seem to be so many colors that it gets to be overwhelming.Another duck that you seldom see much info about is the Harlequin.I would try and do something that isn't so common.I've done the Mallards,Cans. Red head,Teals,etc.

Danny...Bruce Burk has a paint schedule in his book, "Decorative Decoy Carvers Ultimate Painting & Pattern Portfolio, Series 2". It is available through Fox Chapel.

As to the Mandarin, I don't know off-hand where you could get a paint schedule, sorry.
