How can I make an electrostatic flocking machine?
Does it have to be electrostatic? Woodworkers use simple compressed-air or hand-pump systems to spray flocking onto a suitable adhesive, and it works pretty well. Suede-Tex is one brand; there are others.

Here is a site by a guy who re-flocks the hair and beard on old 1970s GI Joes, and gives plans and instructions for building an electrostatic flocking setup. http://flockconcepts.tripod.com/ His forum is where all the good stuff is: http://flockconcepts.proboards.com/index.cgi
Here's a link about several different ways to generate an electrostatic charge:http://www.alaska.net/~natnkell/staticgen.htm Here's one about applying flocking to a fishing rod grip using a flocking gun:http://www.rodbuilding.org/library/flocking.html Depending on what the flock you're flocking, these might be helpful. Good luck with your flocking project!
get a flock of geese, rub a baloon on your hair, attatch it to the flock, and tada!!!! you have an electrostatic flocking machine.
