I need to give this stuff a try, I hate flocking because it constantly sheds and gets everywhere. Maybe this stuff will stay put better.

I picked up a jar of embossing powered and did not like how it looked, I think I will stick with flocking

Bryan, the floor does look good

yea don, shoot the adhesive on, and just pour the powder on top of it, let it dry for a few minutes, and knock off the excess.......all you have to do is turn it over and the extra stuff falls away....

Don, its real easy to do, one more tip, dump the excess on to a paper towel or piece of paper and then that excess can go back into the jar .

I am going to have to get a can of spray adhesive...the one time I tried embossing powder, I used white glue and was not satisfied with the results.

In addition to getting an assortment of colors, you can use white embossing powder and coat it with whatever flat paint color you like. :)

That looks good and turned out great. I never thought of using spray adhesive for flocking material. I have tried many different ways and then what I found worked the best for me was to paint a color close to the flocking let it dry and then I would use model master clean brush it on and then add my flocking by putting it into a metal strainer and tapping it so it looks like it is snowing and fill the area really well and then I would pat it down with my finger then tap it all off and then go to the next section.

Also you can't beat the 40% off coupons from Micheal's or Hobby Lobby.... I am always using them when i do buy stuff there.

I do this, then (after it is dry) I hand brush acrylic clear satin, or flat over it to make sure it doesn't come loose....works for me !....'Z'
