Flocked mushrooms – Craft Idea – Rayher

Instructions in 8 steps2 rosy mushrooms, 2 yellow mushrooms, 1 green mushroomAnd this is how it works:

1

Step 1

Stick all 5 styrofoam mushrooms onto a wooden skewer.
2

Step 2

If the styrofoam mushroom gets a "creased seam", this unevenness can be compensated for by applying a fine sandpaper.
3

Step 3

Coat the mushroom hat evenly and generously with the glitter dust glue by means of the flat paintbrush. Sprinkle the viscose flocking powder in the desired colour, quickly and evenly, onto the still wet glue. Shake well and tap off any excess powder. Let it dry out for a while.

Tip:

Use a sheet of paper as a pad, so that you can collect easily the flocking powder or the glitter dust and pour it back into the pot.
