What’s everyone’s thoughts that has used one? Good bad ugly? Worth the money?
Totally worth it.
I got mine at the world show and been using it since.
Remember to work close to your work.
Nice thing about them is they stand behind their products. I had an issue ( hey shit happens) and called them . They set up what I needed to do. Set it in and got a new one.
I watched the video and wondered if it really worked like they showed.
Have you done any velvet repair yet? Are the fibers realistic in length and color?
It’s close for what this product can do.
Nothing is perfect but it’s a close lookalike
To get a more realistic look you have to invest into a totally different machine that’s very expensive.
But what the King does is a fine job that’s can pull off your needs
As for colors they have different ones so you may have to mix or use what they have straight out of the bag
I bought one specifically to repair some real velvet I had preserved.
It FAR exceeded my expectations and did an awesome job, or maybe it was my talent ?!?
I would send a pic (if I knew how) but you wouldn't be able to tell what I fixed unless I told you and you were using a magnifying glass.
It is like anything "artistic"; less is more and don't over think it.
I would recommend mixing your base color in a plastic bag first to get close or a bit darker. Apply that, then top with a lighter, longer flavor.
I bought a different brand that was over $1000. Years back. Longer fibers would ball up in the hopper. The screen on the hopper couldn’t be used One had to be made out of hardware cloth(wire screen with large hole). I did about 65 large goose decoys with fine velvet. It worked great for that. The guide that used them raved at the success they brought. something for you fellas to think about using this for to help pay for it.
you can make one with a strainer and a electric fly swatter just getting the right lenth fibers is the key
Ya and those long fibers aren’t cheap.
not that bad in price just the min order... they have fibers for GI Joe dolls that work pretty good
