Got the Fowl Flocker standard Canadian kit a year ago planing to do some floaters I got that didnt have flocked heads. Forgot about it, and then today I got bored and decoded I'd go pick up the paint and get them done!

I also ended up painting the tails on some shells and some other full bodies. I did 30 heads and tails all together, still have about half or better of the flocking material left! (Kit says it does 25 bigfoot heads) Pretty easy to do! Take a decoy you wish to flock, sand / scuff the paint some, clean (I used rubbing alcohol), paint (rustoliem flat black, what they suggest), and dust on the flocking!

Didnt get a ton of pics, but I have a flocked and a sanded and cleaned shell here-

here you can see the heads in the back-

So far while dry they feel pretty durable for flocking, and I think they look worlds better! pretty cheap and easy to do! I'll comment more about durability once season starts up!

How much was the kit? A guy on eBay was selling big bags of flocking for cheap. I used flat black oil base rustoleum for my adhesive. Did similar preps and it's help up nicely

the kit was $17, has black and white flocking, paint brushes, applicator bottle, dust mask and gloves.

If I were to do it again knowing what i know now I'd just get the flocking material.
