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.
Over the course of the year, I am asked a lot of questions concerning techniques, sketches, products etc. So I thought I would create some new posts to answer these frstrating questions. First up is a question from Sandy:
“What is foil embossing?”
Foil embossing is the process of leaving a raised design on a piece of foil. You can use sheets of craft foil or kitchen foil. The process begins when you choose the embossing folder. I would suggest a background folder that is not to detailed. Attach the foil to a piece of thin cardstock to give it strength so that it won’t tear. Next, place it in the folder and run it through the die cutting machine. You could then rub the embossed design with a metallic rub-on or leave plain.
