What is a Flock Applicator?

Flocking and electrostatic grass applicators are tools that are used to add realistic grass and vegetation to scale models, dioramas, and other hobby projects, and this way, creating realistic landscapes and many sorts of outdoor scenes. They can be especially useful for adding texture and detail to the surfaces of your projects and can help to bring your creations to life.

Flocking involves using a special adhesive, such as Tuft glue, to attach fibers (usually made of synthetic static materials) to a surface in order to create the appearance of the lawn, fur, or other textured surfaces. Nevertheless, PVA glue may also work with worse performance. An electrostatic grass applicator uses an electrical charge to apply fibers to a surface, creating a more realistic and lifelike appearance.

To use a flocking machine, you will typically apply the adhesive to the surface where you want the lawn to be placed, then use the tool to apply the fibers over the adhesive. The static grass fibers will adhere vertically, remaining in a vertical position thanks to static electricity creating a lawn-like texture.

What is a Grass Applicator Box?

A grass Applicator Box is a tool with the shape of a box that is used to create tufts of lawn and shrubs. The difference with the Portable applicator tools is that all lawn fibers will remain within a box instead of flying around the entire room. Besides, the item to be flocked must be able to fit inside the flocking box.

It also works by using an electrical charge to force lawn-like fibers to fly toward a metal surface with opposite polarity.
