I just discovered flocking for the first time I know most of you guys know what it is but I'm just putting it up here for the newbies like me to discover it. , it's a way to add a layer of felt to the inside of bandsaw boxes bottom of coasters basically whatever you want to cover up with a little bit of layer of felt pretty. It's probably smarter people in me on here that can explain it a lot better. 20210312_134238.jpg 20210312_134242.jpg

Flocking is really cool. I didn't buy the gun. I just use a clear plastic ketchup squeeze bottle. A different one for each color. Then I do my flocking inside an open top cardboard box so I can recover all the excess flocking back to the bottle.

Looks like you forgot to put on painter's tape so you would avoid visible spillover to the edges

I've had that same problem even when using the painter tape. It soaks under the tape at those edges and does that. Now I make sure to seal the wood well before flocking

I’ve used a lot of it. I don’t tape anything anymore, I also only flock the inside of the drawer. I buy the flocking online and the paint at walmart. It’s much cheaper that way, compared to woodcraft or Rockler prices.

Which "paint" are you buying from WalMart?
