Flocking Canadas heads and tails

Postby shootable Goose » Tue Aug 21, 2012 8:09 pm

I need to do some touch up on about a dozen deeks. What's a good website To buy flocking from? I know there's a few different types of flocking and that there's A specific one used for decoys. Which kind is it? Also what kind of paint do you use? And last question, once you sprinkle the flocking Onto the painted decoy, do you just leave it at that or do you press it with your hand or something?
Thanks

Just bought some on eBay the other day that did well. Also you will want to press it on lightly.

I bought a pound of flocking from this taxidermy supply store. I did over 30 heads and still have half a pound left over. I used rustoluem-black.

Look here:

Use Rustoleum flat enamel for the "glue". Thick coat of paint...flock the birds twice. Second coat uses a lot more paint. :thumbsup:

Yup. I did over 10 dozen this summer. They look great, just time consuming. Grab a couple cases of beer and some buddies!
