Hello everyone!!! Welcome to our site. Here we are going to show some tips and tricks on repairing flock on GI JOE (could be done on other figures also)!
Note: The best source for information is our FORUM
Spot flock repair can be pinched and sprinkled onto the pre glued balding area or sifted using a piece of screen or a small dollar store type hand sifter. After the flock has been sifted onto the glue it can be poked into place with a pin or toothpick.
Some have had success, sifting flock onto a layer of glue that has been spread across wax paper and once it’s dried the glue and flock are removed and cut to the right size and used to patch a bald spot.
Anything bigger than an pencil eraser head would need a simply made flock device to be unnoticeable. I have to say though, I have seen repairs done without one that were perfect, but they took a lot of time and talent. Easiest way is to make a simple electro-static device. Which could be just a storage tote with some hole drilled in it, a ground base, and a copper wire connected to negative ion generator. Sounds like a lot, but it’s harder to use a computer than to make a flocker.
The best method by far is to charge the flock with static. A small electro-static device can be made or purchased. This device will charge the flock and line it up on end in the glue creating a buzz cut finish.
Commercial flocking devices run anywhere from $150.00 to $10,000.00+.
A homemade electro-static flocker can be made under $40.00 or less depending on how handy a person is.
On our forumyou can find out how one can be made. It is fairly simple to do, but I would caution anyone unfamiliar with high voltage/low current should not try making a electro-static flocking device. It has the potential to kill you if used unsafely. There is a learning curve to Flocking undetectable repairs.
