A damn good flocking !


Recommended Posts

A few weeks ago the subject of flocking of decoys was mentioned but I now cannot find it. Someone was after knowing where to purchase the grey flocking material to do this yourself. If they care to send me a PM, I maybe able to assist.

No thanks , I have heard there are some rumon folk in the North of the county and I am not sure my Corvid jabs will give me full protection :hmm:

Those `CORVID` jabs can certainly be deadly, John.  Keep them at arms length and away from Bobbie :yahoo:

these flocking kits.........do they include an applicator for the flock dust.....how do you make the flock fibres sit upright on the glue ?

I didn`t have a flocking magnet handy :lol:, so just spread glue over the small areas that had come off and sprinkled the grey flocking stuff on it and shook off the residue. The object (I think) is purely to take the shine off. 

First picture is where a bird came over me where I had the lofters positioned but in my concentrating on the bird, lost all sight of the lofter which you can see took quite a bit of the shot :whistling:. Both lofter and pigeon came down !

Second picture is a small area of `flocking` showing that the grey flocking IMG_2801.JPG.32b405146d549df00064df315789824e.JPGstuff merely provides a matt covering. Not perfect, I know but for a first attempt, does the job.

Ditchy, I thought everyone knew what a flocking magnet was.

The fun is being able to spend more time in the field instead of flocking about in the shed trying dress up Mutton To Look Like Lamb , and in this case , Flocking pigeons .

Rant over , Do you know where I can buy the materials for this project :lol:

Unfortunately John I think the kits would have to be found in the USA and sent over.

I have all of mine painted with simple grey primer and Tippex for the neck bars!

Might have a look at the auction, not much on TV and the chaps on overtime will be gone by 13:00  

Keep things simple for simple minds is what I say

If you buy anything at the auction , I would be happy to pick anything up and keep it round mine until you have time to come down this way and pick it up .     MM

Thank you, I had a look through and the only things I was interested in were more guns!

I really don't need any more.

Good lord 😮

it’s about having more then looking for another cabinet

Used White UV paint (from A1 Decoys) for neck/wing bars on mine - great result - I can see the decoys and the pigeons certainly can !!!
