Valet - same same but different

Another Valet – This one was made from Bubinga and Bolivian Rosewood. The bottom was flocked. This is the first time I’ve used flocking. I’m not sure if I like it or not. It doesn’t help that the adhesive I picked up, which I thought was black, was actually wine colored, so there were some thin spots where the wine showed through the black flocking. I went back over it with spray adhesive, and flocked it again. Still not perfect, but better than before. Had I bought the right adhesive, maybe the thin spots wouldn’t have shown as much. I had figured the material would cover it enough to where it wouldn’t be seen. Oh well!

Sharp! I’ve never flocked before. I’ve always used adhesive backed felt.

David,
Flocking is a process like any other process, you need the skills to apply it so you get a result you are pleased with.

so some skills info for you if interested

1.The glue can be simple as paint tinted to the colour of the flocking you intend to use.
2. You will always need at least two coats ( make that min) much the same as all finishing products you use.
3. The finish you received can be finished with yet another base and flocking hit.
4. You can also use clear arcylic to use as glue if you wish
4. I am sure after this application you will be more impressed.

The overall project is most impresive, in closing dont be too disapointed that you find the flocking is not very durable wear wise either.
As Shin suggested felt is OK if your not happy with flocking.

Keep up the good work!!
