I use PVC (Elmer's). Works fine, and if some gets o nthe piece it dries clear and (usually) comes off easily once completely dry.

Put the felt side down on wax paper to dry. Put a weight (like other DwF pieces) on top to be sure the felt doesn't crinkle.

Hi falerion,

I bought this off of ebay a while ago:
3PC 8.5x11 CHOCOLATE BROWN Velveteen VP-P15 Velvet Sueded Paper from a seller named simplyspecialcrafts. When I got it, it was a bit darker than official DF felt bottoms, but it was okay. Looks like they don't sell it anymore though (although other sellers might if you do a search).

The next closest one I found is:
3PC 8.5x11 Tan CAPPUCCINO Velveteen VP-P06 Velvet Sueded Paper from the same seller.

If you find a good match, be sure to let us know.

Ask the staff at your local craft store for self adhesive velour paper, or self adhesive velvet backing.

While you are there pick up a decent pair of scissors for fabric (if you don't already have some). It's unlikely you'll find this stuff precut to a convenient size.

Sorry I can't be more specific.

Does someone know where to get felt that is similar to the original felt?

I have some pieces where the felt is ripped off or lost and I would like to replace them.

I use 3M spray adhesive.
I spray it on the felt upside down on old newspapers in order to prevent a sticky mess.
Works perfect for me!

I have found that a simple glue stick works just fine.

What's the best way to reattach the felt on the bottom of resin pieces so as to have a good hold but not damage the felt sticker thing?
