The Rustoleum enamel is great: flocking sticks like iron. :thumbsup:

Mean Gene,

What did you use to create the feather detail on your hens and what color brown did you use on them?

I really like those hens.

It's actually two coats of solid body, oil based stain. First coat was a real light tan, second coat was a color with much more orange in it. I've noticed that the flocking can change the colors a bit once it's applied.

Also, the feather detail was just freehanded with an airbrush. I was looking at pictures, guessing and hoping.
