Flocking is pretty much powder fuzz. You should use a kitchen strainer (2.00) to apply it. It's a good idea to paint the area you are applying it to the same color as the flocking. Make sure you use a flat paint (ever heard of shiny carpet??) then you can either apply it over the wet paint, or wait till' it dries and just use white school glue. I use glue. Work in small areas at a time. Put some Flocking in your strainer and shake it over the area. put it on pretty thick and let it dry completely before you touch it. After it's dry shake off the excess. If you have any parts that look thin or anything, just go back with some more glue and add more flocking. That's all there is to it. :biggrin:

well i dont know much bout it, but people use a coffee grainer thing to sprinkle it on. you have to glue the area you r flocking
kitchen strainer......thats what i meant[/b][/quote]
lol, it'd be hard to push it through a coffee strainer!!

(You can get a kitchen strainer at the grocery store in the baking aisle.)

i tried that before but it takes to long and it leaves 2 many bold spots. this is what i do........i paint the floor the same kolor as the flocking. after its drys, i lay a thin coat of white glue with a wide brush on the whole floor. cover the whole floor with flocking. then i push down on the flocking. after it drys, i tap the model upside down and shake it off. then with a tooth pick i lightly scrape of the excess off it only takes like 2-3 min. and covers the whole thing in 1 shot.

also do this over paper, so the excess lands on there. and you can put it back in the tub
