What Da Flock?

As I finished these boxes, my intention was not necessarily to make jewelery boxes. As a matter of fact I just was making plain old boxes without any particular purpose. As I approach the final finish however I realized one last touch might be to flock the inside of the box. This adds a bit of richness to the box construction and gives a sense of protection to the items you place inside. In hind sight I think I would have been better off skipping this step. The undercoating was hard to control and tended to seep too far underneath the masking tape in some places, yet not enough in others. I was able to clean up the edges enough to make it look OK however.
