Some recent flocking work

Postby Mallyard » Thu May 31, 2012 2:40 pm

Had the day off today, so I took on a FFD project.
This was a prograde honker that was missing alot of paint. Gave her a make over.

Looks real nice! Did you use tan flocking for the entire body and then paint the brown areas?

Looks good. Im on the tail end of flocking/reflocking 25 heads and butts of some lessers and my floaters. Definately a learning curve (and a messy one at that)

Yeah I agree. It's very messy. I have a good set up, and can do a lot of heads at a time. Honestly if I'd never done it and didn't have the system I have now. I'd be hiring it out.

Looks good, I have around 3 dozen I need to get done. Which flocking kit did you use?

I order all my stuff direct in bulk since I use so much. IMO the kits on eBay are the best if your just using black.

Very much so. When I pay for a new mud motor by flocking and painting decoys for customers in my spare time, which I think is a fun off-season hobby, it'll definatly be worth it. :yes:
