Saw this Great tip on another forum.Velveteen Paper that is more to scale than the Flocking covered carpets usually used to cover model floors.The Velvet doesn't come off apparently and is paper thin.It is Not sticky backed but more to 1/18 and 1/12 scale correct so it has been said.May help some guys to put more accurate carpets down.The most popular colours are Charcoal and Midnight Black.The link can be found here.

Looks good, would be a lot better then flocking which messes around. This paper can be sticked with a double tape easily.

I had some of this paper (black colour), it is not so easy to work on curves. So, with some water, all the velvet peels off, you wash it to remove the glue that keeps the material on the paper and you dry it. And you have your flocking powder.
Drying it is a bit boring so all the material I had, went in the oven to evaporate the water. After the oven, I had a perfectly flocked pan!!! Peeled the pan too but the material came to big pieces. With the help of a colander (stainer or whatever, google translate results) you have your powder!

That sounds like a bit of a hassle. Is it easy?

It is very boring, not hard but with a paper about 1mX1m that I had, the powder is enough for many models
