Flower Soft to the test

I have been playing with a new-to-me product called Flower Soft® (along with my new camera and scanner, I might add!)  It’s a fascinating jar of fluff that, when paired with super tacky glue, can turn a paper surface into a 3-D wonder of texture and color. A little like flocking, but coarser in appearance. I chose the Poppy Red because I adore its tomato-y goodness — a little like my mother’s lipstick that I used to wear on Halloween as a kid (but that’s another blog).

I bought the 30 ml jar, which I think will last me into my eighties. A little of this goes a long way. Opening the jar is a bit like opening a canned snake (remember those?), because the product compression is surprising. I should note, too, that once the fluff expands, it’s hard to get back into the jar (word to the wise, plan to put leftovers in another container). That said, it’s a heckuva lot of fun to work with … glue and sprinkle, glue and sprinkle. A bit like glitter, but I didn’t find it all over my face afterwards!

Here’s the product (and I should mention, this is not a paid endorsement … just me trying out new stuff):

Here are two variations of designs incorporating the Flower Soft:
