Jerry H.,

I got it from the Constantines Wood Center catalog. They sell the Suede-Tex brand flock. It is the best.
http://www.constantines.com/
Constantines is a catalog of supplies for wood craftsman and furniture makers.

I spent all of $8.00 for a little bag of Flock about 10 years ago. I put a pinch in some Castor oil and I've been showing the electric field lines demo ever since. Most of the flock is still in the bag!

By the way two things I recommend for the electric field line demo:
1) Use a thick, viscous oil. For me the Castor oil has been a better performer than the transformer oil.
2) Instead of the OHP put the thing on a light box and project it with a video camera. It gives better contrast and has better resolution and besides the OHP are going the way of the dinosaur and the LCD video projector is winning the war of evolution by the process of natural selection.


Jerry give me your shipping address and I'll send you some flock. -- JZ



Taplers,
Where do those of you who use it purchase flocking for your electric
field demos?
And before those with other preferences reply:
Yes, I know some of you use and prefer grass seed as well as a number
of other things but I am interested in obtaining some nylon or rayon
flocking about 5 denier and .030" to .060".

Thanks,
Jerry H.
