Hi,

I guess it's more of a model car question, but does anyone have any tips or suggestions on how to do some flocking? I'd like to know what glue to use, as well as how to apply glue and flocking, tips on technique, and also where I can get this stuff in the uk (I've done online searches, but not sure I'm finding the right kind of stuff).

Please reply with links and tips for someone who's an absolute beginner when it comes to flocking.

All/any replies most welcome!!

Thank you

Tim

Flocking? As in Snow?

you can try a simple 50/50 mix of white glue and water with baking soda sprinkled over the top. That's the most basic trick I can think of.

Hiroboy.com are based in the UK and I have bought loads of gear from them, they are a specialist automotive model supplier and sell everything you could ever want for car and bike models, im sure they sell flocking, I have never used it myself so can't offer any tips unfortunately.
But check out the site, it's well worth a look, and if you airbrush your models their paints are colour matched to the real thing and are excellent

Oh....flocking as in coating a hard surface with a kind of powder material to create a fabric?
I've seen this done and I'm sure there is a kind of shaker that creates a static charge to evenly apply the flock.
Or I guess you could adopt a Christmas card method of applying a PVA then sprinkle your flock and "tap-off" the excess!
Would be interested in seeing the result.
