Anyone know the best way of removing flock easily from a fuzzy head? I have a blonde fuzzy and he is really patchy but he has nice blondy paint job underneath so I thought I'd get shot of it and just have a fake PH.

i was told many moons ago

Smother the noggin in Mr Muscle Oven cleaner then tie up in an air tight bag or simular and leave him over night Smile

Flocktastic told me smothers his heads in oven cleaner then seals them in a margerine tub for a couple of days then easily scrapes the flock off with a knife Smile

Post a run through mate when you do it Smile

Cheers Dan. Doesnt even look like glue has been used! It literally looks like it was flocked while the paint was still wet to save on glue! Lol

Soak the head in denatured or isopropyl alcohol, then scrape it off with an old credit card.

Im not one for following instructions very well (a bit rebelious you could say) so I used nail polish remover and a lighter and then did a bit of sanding after!! I actually really like the look of a de-flocked fuzzy with a painted head.. What do you guys think??Flock removal Pbucket
