I have done this on some old floater decoys. They were magnum mallards. I bought some white flat or primer paint. Then I got some herters decoy paint for the beak and I used flat black for the wing tips.

They turned out ok.

I would recommend going over them a few times to get the coverage you need. Otherwise it isn't "totally" white or a constant white....ie: they look like gray spots or graying/faded areas.
