From what I've read, when it comes to the plastic for painting figures, most customizers use acrylic paint instead of enamel. The enamel sticks well to hard plastic, but when it comes to softer plastic, like that used in action figures, the acrylic sticks better (and they are available in gloss as well).

Here's a tutorial page at Figure Realm that has a few tutorials that include painting: http://www.figurerealm.com/viewcustomtutorial.php
usually i use acrylic paint for every thing that i do including custom disney artwork. acrylic paint dries very fast and sticks well to plastic so its nice to use. i also heard someone say that i may want to paint the Tron armor for the figures with an airbrush... do i really need to spend money on an airbrush or can i just hand paint the armor with glossy black acrylic paint?buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra onlineon line abortion pill cytotec abortion medical abortion pill online

Well, if you're good, you can brush the paint on if you need to. When it comes to most people who customize figures, they use brushes to paint their figures more than they use airbrushes or even spray cans of model paint. Honestly, I never heard of using an airbrush on figures, but when it comes to plastic models of figures and vehicles (sometimes at a bigger scale), airbrush is an option used. But like I said, I've never heard of an airbrush being used for an action figure.

Actually, for adding detail, I've seen someone use acrylic paint slightly watered down to paint into notches where the circuit patterns. I plan to do that with mine as well: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iLLasOyag68
thanks for the help! not sure if i will paint over the circuitry or not.... of course, he proved that it wouldn't hurt anything but still, i would accidentally find a way to screw it up. i think im just going to stick with making the armor look more like shiny leather, the suit look less like plastic, and their helmets very shiny and glass looking. i know a place in florida (which im going to in a few weeks) that still sells Rinzler deluxe figures. i might pick up another one to go along with the one i already have and i might do the same thing to him that im doing to the rest of the figures, but then paint the circutry white.buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra onlineabortion pills on line abortion pill medical abortion pill online

Greetings, I'm back!
Just found a B-Wing pilot at Winners (Canadian version of TJ Maxx), the head looks not bad! I know that Wedge Antilles might look better but he is harder to find and expensive!

So what was the way to fix the Rinzler neck so the new head wont be looking down?buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra onlineon line abortion pill misoprostol dose abortion medical abortion pill online

Either heat up the neck ball and try to work it back carefully or cut off the neck of the figure you're taking the head off of and glue it onto the Rinzler body. Glad you were able to find a B-Wing pilot for your figure custom. buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

Hey everyone.

I know it's been a while since anyone last posted in this topic, but I figured I'd post about things on my end. Been sort of busy to where I haven't been able to do any of the customs I hoped to do. I'm hoping that I'll be able to get around to doing the custom figures I've been meaning to do. I managed to pick up a spare Kevin Flynn lightcycle that I plan on turning into the black lightcycle we saw on Sam's shelf at the start of the film.

When I begin work, I'll start letting you all know of it. buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra onlineabortion pills http://www.guitar-frets.com/blog/blog/page/how-does-abortion-pill-work.aspx medical abortion pill online
