With the Herters can you just paint and seal? Or do they have to be restle coated some way?

I would answer you this way:

Ten of thousands of birds have been killed over painted foam, typically on just foam I have primed with a really good primer once I took off any loose old paint and then apply your new paint. They are foam they will ding up but they will kill ducks,

Restle/Trestle coating with many substrates provides a very durable covering as does burlapping. I have also seen epoxy, wood glue coatings, lots of things have been tried over the years just depends on what you want to do and how durable you want your decoys to be and how particular you are on the looks of the bird.

Hope this helps.
