Hi guys just trying to find out where I can find flocking powder for doing interior on a few of my models I have, been looking around but all I can find is from the U.S & wondering if someone can give me the heads up on where to buy the good stuff either in the U.K or Europe?

Also is it best to apply to painted or glued surfaces & any little tutorials would be great as am a flocking virgin.

Cheers in advance, Colin.

Hmmm, I thought I'd answered this in the shoutbox :D  Hiroboy.com (UK) does flocking & wiring. Or http://www.modelbrou...alog/-c-35.html (but Dutch only)

http://www.modelbrou...ieurvlokken.pdf Using wet paint or http://www.modelbrou...ieurvlokken.pdf using double sided tape.
It's in Dutch but the pics might help you out.

Cheers mate, just ordered from the Dutch site as the U.K seller has no stock. Thank you for the info, nice one.

Alternatively, I think using flour works way better than in store flocking..they all seam bigger than it should be and surely you already have some flour in your kitchen.

I always order from here: http://www.cd-hobby-...Powder&cat=c38
Nice price and huge color range!  :wavetowel2:

I prefer flocking in wet paint. This way you can vary the color shade to best match. :nice:

Go on Ebay, there is tons of the stuff on there.

Search for nail flocking powder.  Every colour you can think of.  I have used it and it is great stuff.  I always use a matching paint for it to stick to.  Good luck with it Colin.

thanks for the tip.....I may try this just for the heck of it.  I've used Ken's FuzzyFur for years and love the stuff.  When I lived in CA, the hobby store I frequented carried it....but now I have to order online because I've not found it locally here in Houston.  Nail flocking powder might be a good option but none of the ones I looked at on ebay gave a good description on the amount/size of the containers.
