white school glue thinned with water 50/50 can also be used.

Well, I'll be flocked. That makes it look so easy. Tried it the way they recommend, it sucked. Maybe you ought to be teaching them?

Can anyone tell me if there's a chain store that carries Soft Flock or some other type of flocing fibers? I know that Michael's & Wal-Mart does not.

why would you want it thinner? the 77 is what i happened to have here so that's what i used, and it worked fine.

It looks more like real carpet rather than the watered down Elmers method which always leaves clumps with me. I think I'm going to try it on my next project.

seeing as how I am always pinching pennies, does anyone know how I could go about making my own flocking. What I'm really needing to know is what is the basis material for the prepackaged stuff like detail master makes. Thanks in advance

yea, i use it all the time when i do car stereo installation..building boxes and custom panels and what not. so it only made sense to use it here! lol.

the paint really doesn't matter. the stuff i applied is testors acrylic. i've used laquer, enamel....none of them had a bad reaction. any paint will work

the glue is just that, glue. and it'll stay tacky for several minutes. after about 30sec. to 1min. after i shook off the excess i considered it finished an ready to handle.

flocking is the term for applying a fabric like finish, the flocking that you see here is just a sort of powdered material. think of it like fuzz, lol.

Thank you for giving us all such a concise, easy to follow tutorial. I've been applying mediocre flocking jobs for years, but with this spray adhesive, maybe I can get a good, scale result.
