I use a 1:1:1 paint:and white ("tacky") glue:water mix with a
tiny bit of dish soap to reduce surface tension (I keep a 1 oz
sqeeze bottle with 1 small drop of soap, and add 1 drop from
the bottle to the paint/glue mix). But it's basically "paint
the base and pour flock/sand/tea-leaves/whatever on it."
When it's dry I may drip a little 50:50 water:white glue on
top to fix it. I also paint the base with a base color before
flocking, because the paint/glue/water mix may not be opaque.
