A book or someone to learn from, or both.
A rough out body. You can find a great selection at http://www.jaymescompany.com or http://www.sugarpinewoodcarving.com
Both have everything you could want.
Don't forget to buy eyes for your duck.
You can buy an inexpensive set of acrylic paints at Michaels or Hobby Lobby. It will probably include some brushes. The books I've listed about will give you specific brush types.
You will need a Dremel type grinder.
Here is a good enough battery powered one for under $25.00.
Dremel 7300-N/8 MiniMite 4.8-Volt Cordless Two-Speed Rotary Tool Link: http://amzn.com/B003TU0XFUDon't worry you can spend hundreds on grinders if you get the fever for carving.
You will need a woodburner. Don't get the soldering iron type. You can find a selection at either of the two online sites I mentioned above.
