Bunny Slippers with Flocking Story Continues
Cute bunny slippers are still on my mind. After my first flocking update featuring the bunny slippers, it’s been hard to forget about those fuzzy, soft and colorful creations. Thus, the story about flocking the slippers continues. In today’s update I will share with you an awesome flocking tip that Christine discovered while in her studio when she needed some purple flocking for one of her bunny slippers. Since she was feeling under the weather last week, I haven’t been able to talk to you for awhile. The last time I talked with you, I reported about how Christine adds the flocking to her bunny slipper magnets. And yes, how I wanted to dive into the colorful flocking powder! In the photo above you can see all of the bunny slippers completely covered in flocking powder and the magnets are getting glued on.
A Very Useful Flocking Powder Tip
Here are the bunny slippers in the flocking application stage. Christine wanted me to share a flocking powder tip with you. As she was adding flocking to the slippers, she wanted to make a slipper with purple flocking powder. The problem? She had no purple flocking powder and she was having a hard time spotting some purple flocking powder online. After some thought, she decided to mix the pink and blue flocking powders together to see what the result was. To her delight, she was able to mix a purple color of flocking powder. So remember that if you need a certain color of flocking, try mixing some of the colors that you have to see what you end up with!
The photo above shows how the slippers look all done in their fuzzy flocked goodness! Christine has these adorable bunny slippers magnets at her Etsy store, Lilly Bug Boutique. At her store you can select your favorite color slipper from the bunny bunch. They are so soft and fuzzy to the touch.
So how did you like learning about how the bunny slippers were flocked? I hope you enjoyed it. Talk to you soon!
Love the flocking, it makes these slippers look so comfy! I appreciate the tip about mixing the blue & pink flocking powder to make purple because it is a good reminder that experimenting w/ materials is an awesome way to discover new techniques so don'[t be afraid to tryout new ideas. 🙂
That is a great point, Cheryl! You can learn new techniques by experimenting and also possibly save some money too.
