There are a lot of LJers who use the stuff, try a search for “flocking” of this site.

You can make one from two peices of cardboard. It’s merely a tool that blows powder

I think this is what you want:

I have used this many times on small boxes, it works great.

I’ve also used the one scottymann referenced and didn’t have any problems. I don’t know if you can get it in Europe.

The flocking that Rockler sells is suede-tex made by a company called Donjer. You can buy it directly from the manufactures cheaper than from Rockler. Here is a link to their site.

You can get the adhesive, flocking and applicator for $22 US or 2 kits for $40 US, plus shipping.

I bought my first Flock kit from WC easy to use and not to expensive either, the paint can mess with you if you dont have good air flow..

I used some felt covered fabric I bought at Walmart in the craft department.

It comes in 8 1/2” X 11” sheets with adhesive back.

I used it on this Project.
