Topic tags/keywords: flocking

I have several boxes where the wood is dark in nature and has shown through the flocking. Since these are girly boxes, the flocking needs to be a girly color – pink. So I ordered a light pink and applied the flocking “glue/paint.” to the boxes. I may have coated it too lightly with the glue considering the dark nature of the wood. With the light pink flocking, the dark wood shows through. So can I just re apply another layer of flocking glue and flock?

I have flocked before but it was a dark blue on a dark wood and so i did not see any issues.

I used Don Jer as my flocking material / glue.

I’m not sure what the flock you’re talking about….:)

I have never flocked over flocking… but when I do flock, I put down a very heavy “Paint/ glue”. So heavy that you cannot see any brush marks on the bottom. Looks like a puddle of paint. I use brown flock over light colored oak using dark brown “Paint” with no problems. Did you use pink Paint/glue?

Jim
I used a pink paint / glue from Don Jer. I must have painted too light of a coat. I am going to try one piece and see if I can get it to look better.

I think you are flocked. I mean, you are done. I have no idea what you can do to fix that. But I had to post, just to play on words like others already have. Yup. yer flocked. Okay, I’ll go to bed now.

So FYI – You can flock over flocking if you ever need to. I’ll try to post a new photo but they are drying at the moment
