BornPrettyStore: Fuzzy Flocking Powder..

So today I’m reviewing a pot of ‘Fuzzy Flocking Powder‘ sent to me by BornPrettyStore. It comes in a little screw-cap tub within a plastic pocket which helps keep all the fibers that might escape away from everything else.

When I saw the colour of the powder, which is option #4, I immediately knew what it was destined for – anyone else see that colour as bear?

I firstly outline the desired shape in brown polish, but it wasn’t enough for this bear to be fuzzy, he had to have dimension too! So I painted up a few layers of UV cured gel to create a 3D head shape.

Once I was happy with it, I painted a thin layer of UV polish over the shape and tipped the flocking powder over it. I tapped off the excess and then stuck it back under my UV light. Once it was fully cured I used a soft nail brush to dust off any loose flock: by using UV cured gel rather than polish I believe it help the flock stay stuck. (Top tip – do the flocking part over a piece of paper, that way you can tip the extra flock back in to the tub with ease, without it being all over your work area too!)

He’s still not finished though, he was missing his eyes and nose of course. Again I used cured UV gel to give them dimension and ta-da!

Didn’t he turn out cute and super fuzzy! (I unfortunately see him as part squirrel or something though…)

As you can see, the flocking powder has done a really good job at covering the whole area and retaining it’s own colour – you’d bearly (haha) know that there was such a dark brown underneath.

If you’re not keen on using the flocking powder in such an extravagant (ridiculous) way and are looking for a quick and easy design, then I suggest you try the fuzzy leopard look! I used normal polish for this and even though the coverage isn’t as good, the fuzz is definitely noticeable.
