What the heck is Flock?

Dear Fellow Crafters,


Flocking powder is made up of masses of tiny fibers which when applied onto adhesive, sticks to it and enhances the surfaces. It is sold in small tubes or jars and comes in many colors. My favorite colors are white and pink.

One of the easiest ways to use flock is to simply add glue to the surface of the project like the “fur” of a teddy bear stamped image or the petals of a die-cut flower and pour the flock onto it. Regular glue sticks are not wet enough.  Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue  works well. Sprinkle the flock on the glue covered area and use your finger to press lightly, securing the flock to the image. Wait a few minutes, then tap the flock to remove any excess and pour back into the jar.  You can also use a glue pad and rubber stamps. Another way is to use double-stick tape or adhesive sheet with die cuts. Flock is found usually with embossing powder in craft stores.

Some  on-line companies that I recommend are Stampendous Tsukineko ,Inkadinkado.and Therm O-Web.

Happy Flocking!
