    This.
    The flocking will only stick to the glue/paint. If it gets on the body, it will just blow off.
    Personally, I like to put the glue/paint on as thick as I can, without it running, then grab a handful of flocking and 'press' it straight in (don't smear). Just keep doing this all around the head, then tap with a rod or screwdriver to knock off the excess.

    avoid the flocking gun. They were designed for doing jewelry boxes and such, with tight corners you can't get into.

    Yeah, I call my gun that when it misfires. Of course, I pronounce the first word a little differently.

    There are a lot of videos out there on youtube about flocking, some good, some not so much. It is a simple process and it beats shipping your decoys back and forth. A couple of things that I would consider a must are WEAR A RESPIRATOR, use only gloss rustoleum as a glue, only use a kitchen sieve over big plastic tub for recovery, find a breeze free area, use only nylon flocking, paint fast and flock quickly, and most important, WEAR A RESPIRATOR.
