Originally priced at $24.99 but now reduced to $5.97. I've been wanting to try flocking for a long time and the price was right!
I know that you are supposed to paint the head the color of the flock you are using, but I wasn't going to waste the black flock while I was testing it out. I wanted to see what the flock would look like with flesh or an opposing color underneath so her head is black in the front and sides and unpainted in the top and back. I didn't thin my mod podge. I just glopped it on evenly but thickly.
All dry now. You can definitely see whatever the undercolor is. However, this means that you can affect the color of the flock by what base color you use. Good to know.
In [Em'lia's Tutorial] she added a second coat so I tried that too. This time I wasn't as careful putting the glue on and it's all streaky from the brush I used. Tsk, sloppy.
I actually don't see that a second coat made that much difference. Could be the flock is thin or my glue was too thick. Either way, I still like it! I could see some multiple ways to use this stuff and the variety of colors appeal to me.
Joann's is also having a sale on single sheet scrapbook paper, 3 sheets for $.99, normally $.59 each. Sale ends 2/23/13. If you've been wanting some of those sheets that look like a brick wall, they've got 'em. I stocked up!
