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.

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

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?
