First Flocked Project

I made a small monogrammed box and I wanted to make the inside nice and velvety without trying to glue down strips of material (that never works out well for me).

So I went by the local Rockler and purchased a bag of black Suede-Tex fibers, a can of black Suede-Tex undercoat adhesive and a mini flocker tube. It is about $35 for all that so it’s not cheap but you should have enough material to do about 12 square feet.

I was very happy with the results, it is super easy to apply and I think it gives a much better interior finish than anything else I have tried.

It’s worth doing just so you tell people you are a flocking expert.

That’s funny…:joy:
Kind of reminds me of when I was a kid building model cars.
You could go to the hobby store and buy basically the same thing and glue it on the seats of your models.
And that was 50 years ago.:+1:

Interesting, I had never seen that before. Thanks for sharing.

I have been using flocking for quite some time. Its a little cheaper if you order direct from Don-Jer, but you do have to pay for shipping. I have black, brown, navy blue and wine colored flock. But yours came out so much better than mine.
