My best results have always been with Testors Flat spray. I like to use a color close to the carpet color, I generally go with black carpet anyway. I've also been able to color white and blonde flocking with whatever color spray I needed like a light blue or green carpet. I mask what needs it and toss the freshly sprayed part into a paper bag of fuzz and shake. I'll give it a half hour before knocking the loose stuff off.

I use Ken's Funny Fur that I get from Scale Dreams with straight Elmer's white glue. Of course, the area to be flocked is first painted in a color similar to the selected flocking. The flocking is applied through a fine strainer onto the wet glue and pressed with a fingertip. I wait about 30-60 minutes and shake the loose stuff off and gently brush away any other excess. I should have said that I sit the interior on a clean sheet of paper and do the shaking/brushing over the paper. All the excess then goes back into the little plastic container.

I use a brush on acrylic clear flat from Windsor and Newton. I get it at art supply stores. It doesn't dry as fast as other acrylics, so you have some working time.

I like using clear acrylic "paint" as I can control the application, and can be assured it won't seperate over time. Being acrylic it won't effect the base coat (same color as the flocking BTW).

as stated before, painting the part the same color as the flocking is a must.

i just use elmer's glue, spread it out even, and dump the fur on the wet glue. i then just wait 10 minutes and shake it off.

i make it a point to not press it with a finger because that clumps it up and to me it just doesn't look right.

I thin Elmers's 50/50 with water. No probs at all. I like it because its easy to paint it into corners, and if it doesnt look right after it has dried I can wash it out with warm water and do it over.

Where is a good place to get the flocking?

Scale Dreams carries a full line of Ken's Fuzzy Fur.

I thin Elmers glue also,but instead of flocking,I use baking soda. I primer it after it's dry to seal it,then paint it my interior color. I always have an exact color match and the soda has a better "in scale" appearance. It also doesn't have the fuzzy look that flocking has.
