your mouse-fur carpets look great ... what did you use for adhesive?

LOL Grant...  "mouse-fur carpets"...!?!?!?  First I paint the area that I want to flock with a flat paint color that closely matches the color of the flocking I'm using.  Then I paint on a water-thinned coating of Elmer's glue and apply the flocking using a small strainer over a paper plate.  I put a fairly thick layer of flocking down, let it set for a few minutes, and then gently tamp it with a finger, then turn the part over and knock off the excess on to the paper plate.  Sometimes I do a second coating depending on the piece and the coverage I'm looking for.  When done, I fold the paper plate and slide the excess flocking back into its container.
