« Part 3: Piggy's Ears Eyes and Nose job Part 4 of Kids Stuff series Part 5: The Christmas presents unwrapped »

I realised I had not finished the Grandaughters Christmas Piggy banks so I continued on post haste today.

Amoungst all my tools is a Plastic Tub of craft gear, and in it is all the flocking material.

To do Flocking its a reasonably straight forward procedure apply a base coat of material to give it a matching base colour and while its still wet blow the flocking material on and let it dry.

Once its dry brush off the excess, .... and there is usually a second coat required as well.

I started with the darkest colours and finished with the skin tone

I put the item in the tub and process it there.
This provides a catchment for the flocking, keeps everything tidy and allows you to reclaim the excess to use again.

You can buy a special flocking applicator but a honey jar or similar works just as well.

I put the eyes in simply to prevent the sockets from filling up annd then removed them later, and disposed of them fitting a new set on completion.

They are now completed ready for Project posting and their Christmas Trip to Sydney .
