Search youtube for flocking and you'll see instructional videos along with hundreds of great ideas for using it.

I used flock with a glue pad and acrylic stamp. See the result on this card :

There is a really nice feature here, that you can ask a question ON the product page. That way, people who own and use the product can answer whatever questions you have about it there. Hope that helps!

I've only used it a few times. I bought the FlowerSoft adhesive when I bought my FlowerSoft flocking, but it's not really needed. I've also used Glossy Accents, but any glue/adhesive will work. I sprinkle lots of flocking on, then put a sheet of paper over it and roll it with my brayer...or just scrunch it down with your hand to get it to adhere well. Then shake off the loose flocking and save it for another time. I usually heat set it, but I don't know if it really helps :>) Just don't get too close with the heat gun and burn it.

I've used it for mustaches, hair, flowers and animals. Have fun playing with it. I usually try things and see what works and also search on youtube and the videos on sb.

to add to Mrs.Driver5 ....You can use either kind of ink and then heat set it if you don't like the glue method.

There is a video by inkadoo on here under the video tab. I did a search for flocking to find it. It was a spider and it looked pretty cool!
