Process of flocking a Christmas tree with a hand held flocking browser
The first decision step is to picture in what conditions you want the tree when you begin the flocking. Do you want the tree customized or in its raw form? Secondly, pick the most convenient flocking position. An open space will give you room work out the different angles from the ground and the upper position on a ladder. Use a drop cloth to minimize the mess on the floor.
Another critical question is whether you want to flock the entire tree. Some people prefer to concentrate on the center of the tree while others cover the whole length and width. The result will determine whether you can work with the tree in its vertical position or a flat manner.
Collect the supplies

The Cadillac motor gears up the mighty sno-blower to accelerate snow coverage in bigger deeper and higher Christmas trees. It is also suitable in the creation of snow lumps that resemble the natural depositions by nature.
- Consider taking off the lights off or prepare to wipe them off after the procedure.
- Do not replace the flocking machine with one that will not disperse the powder in the designated manner. Our powders are for use with professional flocking machines.
How do hand held flocking blowers work?
The vibration from the hand held device forces the dense fiber to adhere to the tree with high pressure. Each strand adheres to the surface with different speeds; hence, the deposition will be uneven. Additionally, loose production of fibers will eventually migrate to other positions, and thus instigate the appearance of a rough surface.
