1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Repainting action figures - what paint to use? on: November 14, 2015 08:59:20 AM
I use cheap acrylics from Walmart (Folk Art & Apple Barrel brands), but most of the customizers I know hate those and swear by Testors, Games Workshop, and Tamiya paints.

Here's Jin Saotome's (one of the most famous action figure customizers) recommendations/tips:


The site also has a TON of other tutorials you might find informative:

Wow, thats a really fun mash-up!  I especially love the Taun-taun horse on a stick and the Chewbacca slinky dog candy bag.

Very creative and well-done take on the film's subject matter!

I like your unique costume interpretation of the classical mermaid form.  The shimmery skirt/leggings work really well as a tail and the color matches your vibrant tresses beautifully.

The make-up looks great and I love the fuzzy look of the hood/mantle and forearms--I could honestly see this outfit being used on a television show/movie.  Lennon looks fab too; awesome stuff!

Wow, thats amazing--especially to churn it out in that small time frame.  Great detail/texture work.  Rocket Raccoon gives it two paws up!

Outstanding work on the mask and the jacket is pretty fly too!

Ive never seen a female Marty McFly before and you knocked the look/costume out of the park; well done!

I think your bat persona looks fabulous!

And, while I was never a fan of the cartoon, its still interesting to see what Daria would look like as a real person.

Very nice, and creative, two-person costume!  I assume they had to go through doors sideways?
