in the search for a scale rendition of automotive carpeting.. i saw someone that mentioned using fine embossing powder instead of the out of scale store bought flocking.

here is what i am starting out with.


this is the floorpan i will be working on


now i am using the acrylic floor polish as an adhesive, you could also use diluted elmers glue or even wet paint as an adhesive. i prefer the future


put a nice even coat of the floor polish on the floorpan


sprinkle the embossing powder on rather heavy, most will shake off once things dry


after the floor polish dries i tap off the excess so i am left with this


also doing the lower portion of the door cards


after the treatment


getting ready for paint


acrylic paint of choice..99 cents per 2oz at wally world Very Happy


after the flat black paint


only thing left to do is paint the floor mat semi gloss black. but i think the carpet looks 100x better than flocking

what ya think?
