"Re-flocking" figures, or flocking figures.

Posted in Custom Workstation

I have an old MOTU Panthor, and I'm wondering if there are any good tutorials out there for flocking a figure, re-flocking a figure, or removing flocking from a figure.
My poor Panthor is sun-faded and missing patches of flock, so he's looking shabby. How would I go about fixing this?
Any help is appreciated!

Hmm... good point, I just wanted to say kudos on the Daphne pics! (she still called that? I was a big fan in her WCW days)

umm... give me a day or two I have thought about flocking for dunnys and looked a lot floking is easier then I thought...I found three or so tutorials. I save anything in google docs I find helpful I am busy uploading and fixing images but I will try and find it and if I do I'll put it up here. also its basically what you saw on martha. Its a coat you sprinkle the stuff on shake off excess and repeat.
but this tutorial was on gradated color. so it was pretty in depth.I'd like to say I said a couple of days but in reality more like a week I am bad at getting back to things but I will put it to you if I find it.

@ bobtheodd
Yes, yes he did. I used the search over there before I posted, and found nothing. I might have typed in something wonky before I hit enter or something. I tried again and found lots of stuff.

@ patraw
I saw the Martha Stewart stuff at Michael's, and I was considering getting that. You're also right about the exact hue being difficult to find, and even if I de-flock the whole figure I'm not sure I'd want him to be a shade off of the original. It may make more sense to buy a new one sometime.
Also, it's good to hear from you man!

I believe toy flocking is an electrostatic process, which is probably difficult to reproduce at home. That said, I was watching Martha Stewart decorate Easter Eggs last year, and she had some flocking in a jar stuff that you can buy--you just spread some glue on whatever you want to flock and shake it on. Getting the exact hue to match Panthor might be difficult to do--you might be better off to deflock the whole thing, and then reflock it in its' entirety so that the color matches.
