I just washed off a failed flocking attempt on my Realm of Battle board. I don't know what mojo you master flockers out there have, but if you have some advice please share. Luckily the section I flocked up washed off easily without loosing any of the paint. Now I have a huge mess on my hands with nothing to show for it. grrrrrrrrr!
This is a flocking disaster!

I think the key is patience and the right amount of glue.ReplyDelete
When I flock terrain I use a 70/30 mix of PVA glue/water. It has always worked well for me. You do have to work in small areas at a time though.ReplyDelete
bsmoove over at A Gentleman's Ones had major flocking issues with the RoBB too. He might be good to contact, though his advice might be just "don't flock it".ReplyDelete
What worked for me:ReplyDelete
-Don't water down your glue at all.
-Spray with clear matte acrylic sealer after it dries.
I'm still not done with my board, but you can find a WIP photo here: http://www.outsydergaming.com/2009/12/who-flock-has-time-for-this.html
Tips for flocking the RoBGReplyDelete
1. Go in small sections
2. Water down your PVA glue 1:1
3. Use a mesh strainer to laydown the flock. It will give an even spread and prevent clumps from making their way onto the board.
