where have you been, Flocking is an electrostatic, or glueing process that makes the head and or head or tail of a goose decoy, look real, it gives it almost a velvet like texture, that eliminates the glare of the usually unflocked heads almost always seem to have, no matter what kinda flat paint they are painted with, kinda new to this stuff are we, anyways i hope this helps sorry i dont have more technical info to give you but or anywhere to link you for more information, i would just say google it im sure you will find something here maybe this will help

Yup thats it, GHG has FFDs which means Fully Flocked Decoys, they paint the decoys, then flock the entire decoy, then paint them again, they look F-in real, cause it makes them have that soft look of feathers
