How can I keep the paint from bleeding through when flocking drawers?

Q. I just finished making a small trinket box from the kit I bought from you. When I flocked the drawer, the paint bled through and marked the outside of the wood. How do you prevent that from happening?

A. When I am working with open grained wood, such as oak, I seal the end grain on the inside of the drawer with a coat of yellow glue before flocking the drawer.   You can check to make sure you have filled all the open grain by holding the drawer up to the light.

P. S.

I have just added a short video to my blog  posts on the website that will answer your question in more detail.
