Default Flock & Seal

Is it typical to flock a model's base, then seal it, or to seal the painted model, then flock the base? In this case I'm using a spongy forest-floor-looking flock typically used for model train terrain and I'm wondering if it will look too hard and unrealistic if I seal it after flocking.

People say that you should seal your flock... but there is no need to if you super glue it down. PVA glue will require you to seal it.

I always use superglue on my bases.

What about white glue, like Elmers? Or does that not work at all?

I use watered down white glue to attatch the flock. You must spray seal overtop of this or the flock will come off. I think it looks good with purity seal or 'ard coat.
