Question Flock question

I've got three bottles of flock by Stampendous. What do you use to adhere the flock to the cs? I tried VersaMark, but it didn't work. Also, do you heat it with the heat gun or let it dry on its own?

Thanks for the help - Regina

I use mine with a glue pen and it worked fine. I didn't heat set. I put the glue down and then pressed the flock down and let it dry then tapped off excess.

When I used this at Archiver's - we used glue. it kinda looked like versamark, but it was glue. Even was on a pad to use with stamps. I poured the flock onto the glue stamp - just like I was embossing - and tapped off the extra. That was it.

Tsukineko has a glue pad out that works well. Other options are Heat and Stick powder and tacky tape.

You can use liquid applique. Then, if you want it puffy as well you can heat it. Versamark is actually a watermark ink. It will dry and is no longer sticky. It works with embossing powders because it is temporarily sticky, long enough for you to melt the embossing powder. With fun flock, since you don't melt it, when the versamark dries and isn't sticky, the fun flock will just fall off. A glue pad, like someone suggested, would work great.

Default Adhereing Flock

Palette has a clear and black glue pad that is very easy and has wonderful results....just "ink" the image with the glue pad and then sprinkle the flock. This will have your entire image that made contact with the glue pad a flocked image. The Quickie Glue pen is what I would suggest for certain areas that you want flocked-not the entire image.

Smile Thank you!

Thank you so much, ladies, for your valuable input. I've got the Essential Glue Pad, but never thought about using it. Duh!

One of my customers tried using the flock with the glue pad. After it dries, you can still rub it off. Is there anything else she needs to do after she applies the flock?

Thanks

subbing...I am having all sorts of problems with this. I was hoping to use it for a Valentine's Day card and I cannot get it to stick the way it should...I have used all sorts of glues, all of which are goopy and not giving me the result I want.

I used the glue pad by Tsukinino (sp) for flocking chipboard for a sb page. It worked great! It held in place and didn't come off. One thing I should have done is paint the chipboard first, it shows a little of the color through the empty space of the flocking.

Here's from the Stampendous website:

"Stamp the image using a pigment ink (such as VersaMark by Tsukineko) and sprinkle with Stamp N' Bond embossing powder. Use a heat tool to melt the powder just until it starts to turn shiny and immediately pour flocking over the surface. Pressing the flock into the adhesive will give better coverage. Brush away excess."

Default Fun Flock Problems

Hi..I just the other day tried to use my Fun Flock and was glad to see after reading a post that "I" wasn't the only one having problems...was tempted to throw the 2 bottles I had in the garbage..but I didn't!!

First, I tried the glue pad and stamped my image, than poured fun flock (LOTS of it) onto the stamped image. Gently pressed down the flock, and let it set...rubbed right off...ALL of it!!

Next I tried glue pen, and it worked better??? but not enough coverage
that "stuck" despite TONS of flock I covered it with, etc.

SO, I'm going to try " InI96" 's message about using the stamp/bond embossing powder and do as she said. Not sure where to purchase this
at though ?? ALso, doesn't S-Up have a Heat/Bond Powder for their glitters?
Maybe that would work also? Have never used it before. Any other ideas,
suggestions, would be greatly appreciated and THANKS InI96 for passing this info. on. It's truly appreciated. (If I spelled your name wrong..sorry..can't always see too good.)

Take Care ALL..bye Jo (JoAnney)

I ordered a whole stack of flock from Paper Wishes. (I think I got 6 or 8 different colors.) I also ordered the glue pad, but I haven't used it yet. It says to clean your stamps with Staz On cleaner and I'm chicken that it will ruin my stamps. I use SU's heat and stick powder with great success. have fun.

I use flock quite often and have found that plain liquid glue works great. In small areas I apply it with a toothpick. In larger areas I put a little glop and then spread it around with a toothpick. I pour the flock over it and then tap off the excess. It will be raised at first but it will dry flat and it will be slightly darker when dry. I usually color the area that I am applying flock to. The one time I didn't the color was a little washed out.

Default Purchase Flock at Hobby Lobby

I have found flocking at Hobby Lobby in the seasonal sections. They usually have a three color set for the holidays. I too have tried a few different techniques to get it to stick, but so far not so much. So, I'll have to try the head and stick powder. Thanks for everyones input!!!

That's what it's called Heat/Stick Powder..not Heat/Bond...by S-Up. Oh well?? I was close ??!! Thanks for clarifying that for everyone...me included.
Take Care ALL...Jo
