Flocked head help

Postby Honk-n-quack » Tue Mar 12, 2013 8:38 pm

I just purchased some bfs from a guy, good deal just some of the flocking is worn and the gloss plastic is showing thru. How should I fix this? I was planning on spraying rustoleum flat black on a brush and then painting it on, but I don't want to melt the flocking or something bad like that. Also, maybe some tips on painting the cheek patches, they are more of a yellow cream color. Its probably not necessary but I'm Just finding some summer jobs to do :hammer: :hammer:
Only 6 months till early season :biggrin:

First if their all in bad shape use an compressor to spray of the flocking. Then clean them off with soap and water. Second buy on the Avery/GHG Flocking hits and follow the directions. You can use Flat Black Rustoluem spray paint if your fine with painted heads.

Just buy the brush on rustolium flat black. it leaves a thicker coat than the spray stuff and won't dry before you get the flocking on.

I agree, use Rustolium flat black enamel to the touch up spots or sand and scape the heads back to plastic as best as you can, wash with soap and water, let dry then repaint and reflock the whole head. this will make them look clean and new. as for the cheeks i would just repaint with white. i bought my flocking kit from fowl flocker and it worked great, but i wouldn't flock the cheeks again they look great at first but now that they have a full season under them they look dirty and terrible.

They are, I have a dozon that i got cheap and they they get the job done. My only complaint with them is they don't make any different head positions. The flocking has held up well and was easy to do. like i said before i just wouldn't flock the cheeks again.

I've been reflocking some of my older heads. It works great! Get a Donjer kit at flockit.com

Did you find the Dojher flock to shine a lot in the sun? For me, it didn't seem quite as rich of a black as new factory flock jobs. I used Donjer nylon flock with flat black oil based rustolium paint as the base. After I finished it all, I noticed the almost sparkley look to the flock. My fix was to go over it with oil based SEMI GLOSS black spray paint (rust paint). I know it sounds odd to use semi gloss, but when spraying over top of the flock, it doesn't shine and really gives it that deep black look. Flat black just matted it and it looked less natural.

Oh, and I found the bonus to a light spray over the flock is it literally makes it tough as nails.
