Some modelers also like to use colored embossing powder for carpeting (generally available in the scrapbooking section of craft stores) and use spray adhesive.

I'm going to commit a slight act of threadomancy here, but I just ordered some flocking off of Ebay...it is listed as Velvet Flocking Powder For Velvet Manicure Nail Art Polish (who knew they had such a thing?)

I've only seen about 13 colors, but at $1.69 each + free shipping, it was worth a shot...will post pics when it comes in.

I've just had a look on eBay, and that looks just the same as regular flocking, might even pop in an order for myself, plenty of colours to choose from ...

Embossing Powders is what I mostly use, you can find that stuff in most stores in the craft area's. Wal-Mart's carry's it also.

What is the most cost effective product to use to simulate flocking ?  Being on Social Security Disability Income I need to save a penny here or there anywhere I can ha ha.  Is there another product like maybe glitter or something else along those lines that may be cheaper then persay the actual "Flocking"?  Thanks in advance for any info.

A lot of guys will tell you embossing powder is good, but I don't like the grainy, floor mat texture of it. I'm working with disability as well. If you need a particular color I may be able to help you out. P.M. me.

 

Excellent vid Tom, thanks for posting.

You can buy flocking at crafts stores like Micheals, or A.C. Moore for much cheaper than the little tubes at the LHS. The differences in actual velour flocking and embossing powder give you options IMO depepnding on what type of carpet you are trying to replicate.

I'm experimenting using wood putty.  Ok, I've never done any flocking as of yet and I'm cheap. I'm not willing to buy flocking if I'm not good at applying it, so I've come up with an alternative solution... err maybe.  I've taken some wood putty and mixed in some paint and got it to the color I want. then I spread it out on a flat sheet of plastic or anything smooth and let it dry.  Once dry, I scrape it up and crumble/smash/etc...  it in to fine powder. then I have a fine powder in the color I want.   I haven't compared it to actual flocking but, I think it could have some use...
