If I were to buy some brand new G & H goose decoys that don't have flocked heads, can I go straight to using the flat, oil based paint everybody talks about for applying flocking, or do I have to go through the trouble of sanding all the heads first so things adhere better? I'm thinking about super mags, so sanding a bunch of those big heads would be a pain. I'd do it if I had to though, to turn out a better finished product, but it sure would be nice if I didn't have to. Never flocked a goose decoy before.

I just cleaned mine with alcohol and they seem to be holding up well............

Another product that works well as a last step before applying adhesive to the surface is to use engine starter fluid . Spray the surface to be coated then wipe immeadiately with a new paper towel . If the heads have good paint I wouldn`t try to sand . Spray ,wipe, coat and flock.

i have burnt them just a little with a small torch just enough to make the oil to show up
