Same answer I PM'd you Greg, but here it is for anyone else that's interested...

I painted the color/design on the figures like I normally would and let them dry (You definitely need an undercoat of paint the same color as the flocking you're going to cover the figure with- the flocking doesn't go on solid enough to rely on it to give an even, rich color coat.) I then filled up a plastic cake decorating bottle (you can buy them at Michaels or most arts/crafts stores) with the flocking and laid down a bunch of paper where I was going to spray the figures (note the flocking is like furry dust- it goes everywhere...) Then I took some Elmer's glue, thinned it down with a tiny bit of water, and brushed it on the areas I wanted to flock. I then held the plastic squeeze bottle about 2-3 inches away from the figure and squirted/sprayed it with the flocking. I kept spraying it until it was covered in a ton of the stuff. You need to hold the bottle at an angle to get air and flocking to come out of the bottle so it sprays the figure with the flocking. The majority of the flocking ends up on the paper, but it's easy to collect and put back in the bottle. You also have to be kind of fast once you brush on the glue to the time you spray the figure- the glue can dry pretty quick. After I'd sprayed the figure with the flocking I just sat it down and let it dry for a few minutes. Then I blew off the loose stuff. I let it really dry overnight, then I took a soft paint brush and brushed off any loose flocking. If there was a spot that the flocking didn't really adhere to, I went back and dabbed a bit of glue on it and re-sprayed it. I also found it's best to flock the dark colors first, then go back with the light colors if you're flocking multiple colors on one figure. You might also try to cover up the already flocked areas with a towel or something to help keep the new flocking you're spraying from "contaminating" the already flocked areas. I would suggest you test this technique out on Munny accessory that you're not going to use- once you go through the whole process you'll get the hang of it and see really how easy it is.

very cool, after that has all been done did you use any type of clear coat or spray to protect it?

Nope, no clear coating- I would think that would ruin the flocking. It's seems pretty durable, but with any custom I'm not really touching or messing with it. I guess we'll see what happens in a few years...

that's really cool to know it's possible to flock at home (re-check my spelling to make sure I didn't type a message of an entirely different nature).

Do you have any links for flocking supplies, or was it all picked up at local stores etc?

I couldn't find it anywhere locally- everywhere I went or asked about it had no idea what I was talking about. I ended up buying it online here:

http://www.craftflocking.com

I've bought from them a couple times now...

For flocking materials you should go to Donjer, they ship international ... I've bought and tried their flock with their lowcost air-assisted spraygun (only 60 USD compared to a 275 USD Paasche) and it works very good.

Thanks for the info guys, I think I'm going to have to plan a future project with flocking in mind now so I can try it out.

Correct ! Or to put it simple : attaching fibers (nylon or rayon) to your project with the appearance and feel of felt. Here an example of a try-out of mine:

Flocking is, like, when you make an army of, you know, some toy and one goes off, like, somewhere else, and all the others, like, follow along, and...

:suspicious: Ok, that was weak, even for me... :roll:

daniel, those are great!!!!!!!!!!

here's flocking also.

Donjer is the place to go.
I use a big cardboard box to flock in. that way you can recapture the excess flock.
And yes, the flock needs to have the base painted the same color as the flock -- donjer's flock glues are colored to match their flock.

very cool, daniel, thx for the compliment. :) :heart:
Q: in the last piece, did you flock first allover in white, and then on top in grey? great effect.
