Oh wow.  I neeeed one of these. 

I'm gonna have to make a whole bunch, err stable. 

I know I am not going to be able to get any work done today because I'm going to have ponies on the brain.  I will be sure to carry a pad and paper to jot down my ideas so I don't loose 'em.  I'm off to toyworld in my lunchbreak, yeah!

Thanks for shareing your awesome project!   Grin

OK I know it was an absolute age since you posted this Dragonmaid, but I hope to goodness you're still out there, 'cos OMG you did a custom Black Cat action figure!!  I love Black Cat.  Shocked  I have even gone to a con in a Black Cat costume I made (but that is another story). 

I have been racking my brain for weeks trying to work out how to custom paint and re-sculpt my favourite characters.  The sanding and painting I understand.  I figure I'll use model paints, no problem.  But the sculpey has me beat. 

Every pack of sculpey I have ever found says you have to oven dry it, which wouldn't be a problem if it wasn't attached to an action figure.  I just can't imagine your average GI Joe would survive the experience.  Obvoiusly I have something wrong here, I hope to be set me straight. Huh

Oh, yeah, and customising your own action figures definately counts as a craft.

Man, I suck at this.  I give up. Undecided

Another cleaning related suggestion.  Dusting gloves.  I remember seeing a pattern for these in a knit/crochet gift booklet from the 70's, now I wish I could find it.  maybe someone out there knows the one I mean. 

They were a basic mitten or glove which was the covered in latch hooked strands all over the palm.  If you are short of time (or do not knit or crochet) you could purchase a glove in a chunky knit and use a scrap yarn cut in short lengths and a crochet hook to attach the threads, one per stitch I reckon.  Don't forget to do the inside face of the fingers too, this is what makes them special, great for getting into small spaces.

I wonder if a yarn could be chosen that is prone to producing static to increase dust grabbing potential?  Could be quick and inexpensive to make.  Maybe someone else on here has already had a go at something similar/better.  Oops!  i should have checked first, sorry folks, my bad.
